The MSc Programmes are offered by a Department recognised for its internationally leading research in Multimedia Signal Processing and Artificial Intelligence. As such they always provide up to date training in emerging technologies, which is highly valued by industry.
From revolutionary approaches in spacecraft design and ingenious communications systems to nanostructures with incredible properties and the manipulation of light itself, our research in electronic engineering is at the most exciting edge of technological innovation.
Digital technology and computing have revolutionised the way we access and enjoy information, whether for business, security, personal use or entertainment. The delivery of multimedia content relies on many layers of sophisticated signal engineering that can process images, video, speech and audio.
Signal processing is at the heart of all multimedia systems. Our MSc Multimedia Signal Processing and Communications programme explains the algorithms and intricacies surrounding transmission and delivery of audio and video content. Particular emphasis is given to networking and data compression, in addition to the foundations of pattern recognition.

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.
