This programme is specifically intended to respond to a growing skills shortage in industry for engineers with a high level of training in DSP, and to support Internet, multimedia, broadcast, communications, and consumer industries.
You will develop core knowledge of basic DSP theory and its implementation in hardware. In addition you will be able to specialise in areas including multimedia and intelligent signal processing. The taught modules are fully supported, with computing and laboratory work. The MSc is intended 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.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
