Since 1995, we offer a unique MSc programme in Communications and Signal Processing (CSP). This MSc programme will equip the students with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience necessary to embark on a career as a design or development engineer in the field of communications and signal processing. We offer fundamental modules such as Mobile and Cellular Communications and Information Theory and Coding, as well as, other exciting modules on “21st century” technologies such as Intelligent Signal Processing and Internet of Things.

I am currently the Degree Programme Director of the MSc in CSP. I would be very happy to address any questions related to the degree. Please feel free to email me.
