MASTER OF SCIENCE PROGRAMME IN ELECTRICAL

ENGINEERING WITH EMPHASIS ON SIGNAL


PROCESSING

Master of Science Programme in Electrical Engineering


with emphasis on
Signal Processing, 120 ECTS credit points

General information
The objective of the programme is to prepare for qualified development work in industry as well as provide a basis for
research studies. The students meet and work closely with researchers in the field of Signal Processing and will get a
thorough understanding in these areas.

After finishing the studies the student will be able to apply the knowledge in a range of situations for an analysis of
problems as well as creation of solutions. The student will be able to select, design and apply a range of complimentary
and cohesive tools and concepts in the area

The programme is mainly focused on adaptive, image processing and acoustic signal processing. The student will learn
to implement methods in industrial areas in the field of noise and vibration control, speech coding, speech enhancement,
image processing, etc. Example of important courses: Multidimensional Signal Processing, Computer vision, Sound- and
Vibration Analysis, Adaptive Signal Processing, Optimal Signal Processing, and Neural Networks.

The studies will mainly be carried out on campus to make it possible for the students to work close to the researchers of
chosen emphasis. The education will include both theory and practical applications and the student will work both
independent and integrate in to team as well. The programme will be finished by a master thesis work (30 credit points)
which normally will be done at the industry or in close cooperation with the industry.

In order to get the masters degree a student has to complete 90 credit points (1.5 years) courses plus a 30 credit points
(0.5 year) master thesis work, totally 2 years. One credit point (hgskolepong) in the Swedish system corresponds to
one credit point in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

The programme is based on that the student has a bachelor of science in the area of either electrical engineering or
computer engineering.

Aims and learning outcomes


In addition to the aims regulated nationally the following aims have been set for the programme.

On completion of the programme the student will:


show knowledge and understanding in the electrical engineering area, mainly in the area of Signal Processing.
show knowledge and understanding of current trends and problems within the area of Signal Processing.
show ability to search, evaluate and use information in an independent way to be able to learn during both future
studies and at working life.
show ability to, in an independent way, broad the own knowledge into new areas within the area of Signal Processing
and also have the ability to analyze problems and develop new methods and techniques as well.

.
Learning and education
The programme begins with an advanced mathematical introduction and a mandatory basic course within the emphasis
to give base for future studies at the programme.

During the last semester at the programme the student will perform a master thesis work which will combine knowledge
from the courses at the programme. To gain and ensure high quality at the master thesis work, all students have to study
a comprehensive course in research methodology.

The language of instruction and the language of learning resources are in English.

Main structure of the study programme

The programme includes 90 ECTS course work and 30 ECTS master thesis work. Total duration of the programme is 2
years.
