This course is specifically intended to respond to a growing skills shortage in industry for engineers with a high level of training in signal processing, and in particular to support Internet, multimedia, broadcast, communications and consumer industries.
The MSc provides a core knowledge of basic DSP theory and its implementation in hardware as well as providing the opportunity to further specialise in areas such as multimedia and intelligent signal processing. The taught modules are fully supported with computing and laboratory work based around a state-of-the art real-time DSP laboratory consisting of workstations, DSP hardware, specialist software and instrumentation, to provide you with hands-on experience of the practical elements of DSP development and design.
The MSc is intended both for graduates in a related discipline, who wish to enhance and specialise their skills in the area, and also for industrialists with some experience of working with signal processing in the IT sector, who wish to obtain a formal qualification.
Employment details: Signal Design Engineer Metronet Rail Ltd
Activity after graduation: I design and modify the signalling systems on the London Underground Network. My main responsibility is to ensure that new designs/modifications take into account all scenarios and are fail-safe.
Impact of degree on career choice and current opportunities: The main skills that I use are analysis and problem solving - to improve the performance of signalling systems and to enable modifications, all current circuits have to be analysed and understood. My course of study has helped when trying to make engineering decisions.
Engineering is an exciting field to get into and presents many challenges. New legislations which have been brought in have forced engineers to think outside the normal agreed practice.
International Science and Engineering Excellence Awards
In recognition of the important investment that overseas students are making in their education, Queen Mary is pleased to offer International Science and Engineering Excellence Awards for 2014 entry. These awards are for the value of either £2,000 or £5,000 per year and are designed to reward academic achievement and help attract the brightest and best students from overseas.International Science and Engineering Excellence Awards will be deducted directly from tuition fees payable to the College. They apply to all taught courses, both undergraduate and postgraduate, offered by the following Schools:School of Biological and Chemical Sciences School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science School of Engineering and Materials Science (excluding MSc Dental Materials (J5S9)) School of Physics and Astronomy
Value of Scholarship(s)
£2,000 - £5,000
The level of award that a student may be eligible to receive will be based on previous academic attainment. For example, to be eligible to receive an award of £2,000 students must be on track to meet or exceed our minimum entry requirements for the programme of their choice at the point of offer.
