Signal processing, Coding and Visual communication study line
Processing and transmission of signals in communication systems. This includes data compression, video coding and advanced signal processing utilizing e.g., machine learning.
Purpose and Content
This master study line is composed of courses aimed at providing the foundations for development of methods for signal processing in communication systems and the technologies to transmit these signals. The technologies include both wired technologies as well as wireless communication. The study line is focused on the signals and processing of these signals in communication systems. This covers both signal processing for the physical media for transmission, as well as signals close to the users and applications, e.g. processing of natural signals such as audio, images, or video to match them to the transmission environment provided. The reason for this dual approach is that there is a common basis for the processing methods.
The graduates from this study line are mostly working in that part of industry where the physical realizations of communication equipment is taking place. The most well-known example from Denmark is probably the advanced mobile and wireless communication industry including operators. However, there are also a number of possibilities in smaller less known companies, in communication sectors as well as e.g. companies within industrial or traffic control. Another part of the graduates are employed by the growing industry for production of advanced multimedia, such as broadcasting companies, producers of video equipment or internet applications.
