Digital Communications (MScR)


Course Description

Research profile

The Institute for Digital Communications (IDCOM) has three major centres of activity:

Signal Processing
Communications Systems
Communications Interface Research

The Institute has excellent research facilities, including state-of-the-art computing systems and laboratories for usability engineering, audio signal processing and visible light communications.

Internationally recognised for its research on communications systems and signal processing, the Institute offers current research topics including:

green radio
visible light communications
cognitive radio
compressive sensing
distributed sensor signal processing
agile tomography.

The Institute was recently awarded a UK Research Council Platform Grant in Sensor Signal Processing in collaboration with the Joint Research Institute in Signal & Image Processing with Heriot-Watt University.

Training and support

The development of transferable skills is a vital part of postgraduate training and a vibrant, interdisciplinary training programme is offered to all research students by the University’s Institute for Academic Development (IAD). The programme concentrates on the professional development of postgraduates, providing courses directly linked to postgraduate study.

Courses run by the IAD are free and have been designed to be as flexible as possible so that you can tailor the content and timing to your own requirements.

Our researchers are strongly encouraged to present their research at conferences and in journal during the course of their PhD.

Every year, the Graduate School organises a Postgraduate Research Conference to showcase the research carried out by students across the Research Institutes

Our researchers are also encouraged and supported to attend transferable skills courses provided by organisations such as the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Facilities

The Institute has excellent research facilities, including state-of-the-art computing systems and laboratories for usability engineering, audio signal processing and visible light communications.

Research opportunities

We offer a comprehensive range of exciting research opportunities through a choice of postgraduate research degrees: PhD, MPhil and MSc by Research.

Masters by Research

An MSc by Research is based on a research project tailored to a candidate’s interests. It lasts one year full time or two years part time. The project can be a shorter alternative to an MPhil or PhD, or a precursor to either – including the option of an MSc project expanding into MPhil or doctorate work as it evolves. It can also be a mechanism for industry to collaborate with the School.
