About the course

Digital signal processing (DSP) is at the core of the communications revolution. Research is constantly being carried out to develop new DSP algorithms, allowing mobile broadband services, ‘Internet of Things’ applications and other technologies to be delivered to a growing number of users. Statistical signal processing is also fundamental to all aspects of the parallel robotics revolution, including sensing, localisation and the now ubiquitous discipline of machine learning.

This programme will give you a thorough introduction to all the different aspects of DSP as it relates to the communications landscape, as well as specialist knowledge from your choice of optional modules. Our embedded systems/ FPGA lab will give you hands-on experience using the DSP technology that can be found in

Student Profile(s)

Zainab Noori

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Communications and Signal Processing at the University of Leeds?
I finished my Bachelor degree of Communications Engineering from Mosul University in Iraq back in 2010. Now, I am a taught postgraduate student in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Leeds University. The main reasons for choosing Leeds University was that it has a high rank in my specialization compared to other universities in the UK and even in the world; it also offers divergent MSc programs. The Communications and Signal Processing program has provided me with in depth knowledge and critical awareness of modern information engineering as audio and video signal processing, broadcast and computer communication, wireless and mobile communications.

What has been the best aspect of studying on your course and at the University so far and why?
It is such an amazing experience being a student here. Managing the course alongside research is a challenge however I have learnt so much inareas I am interested in and my research, with the encouragement of my supervisor, excites me to keep going towards my goals. The University provides all support you would need from library resources, lab facilities, required materials to career services, advice and counselling.
I also want to mention the role of the Leeds University Language Centre who helped me to overcome the language barrier and made me familiar with English academic style.
