Course content

Our MSc in Mobile Media Communications is offered by a department recognised for its internationally leading research in multimedia signal processing, machine learning and communications. If you’re interested in these fields, and want to receive up-to-date training in emerging technologies, our programme will equip you with skills and knowledge that are highly valued by industry.

The delivery of media content relies on many layers of sophisticated signal processing at the heart of all multimedia systems, which can handle images, video, speech and audio.

Our Mobile Media Communications MSc programme explores 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.

The programme also covers the core details of mobile communication systems so that a whole system for mediacasting can be learned and understood.

Knowledge of both image and sound processing and a communication system is supported by two strong research centres in the Department that have world-leading knowledge in the field.
