MSc in Wireless Communication and Signal Processing
This innovative Masters degree programme will provide you with a range of advanced topics drawn from wireless communications and communications related signal processing (including associated enabling technologies).
Pioneering research projects
Bristol Is Open (BIO) is a joint venture between the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council. Bristol Is Open has developed an open programmable ICT infrastructure which offer 'City Experimentation as a Service (CEaaS)', providing a user-defined experimental environment in the heart of our city. As a student on this programme BIO will encourage you to engage with the project and develop experiments which will use this unique facility.
Over the duration of the programme you'll be taught by experts in the field of wireless communication and signal processing, such as:
Professor Andrew Nix
Professor Mark Beach
Advanced mobile radio technologies
Dr Angela Doufexi
Dr Simon Armour
Advanced Mobile Radio Techniques
Our student's projects
On this programme you'll have the opportunity to work on fascinating and wide-ranging projects.
Below are example project proposals from the 2015/16 year:
Impedance Prediction for Electrical Balanced Transformer
Supervised by: Dr. Mark Beach
The project aims included measuring the antenna impedance variance for outdoor environment and proposing a suitable method for adaptive antenna impedance prediction.
Linearization of Power Amplifiers using Generic Predistortion
Supervised by: Dr. Kevin Morris
Among the project's objectives were choosing the dataset and prediction window, wind speed forecasting and looking at the relationship between wind speed and power output.
The MSc in Wireless Communication and Signal Processing programme will give you access to state-of-the-art facilities at the University:
Toshiba's Telecommunications Research Laboratory (TRL)
The Telecommunications Research Laboratory (TRL) is at the cutting-edge of research into technologies including next generation wireless networking, reconfigurable device architectures and 'smart' systems for energy, mobile and medical applications. Around 10-15 students will have the opportunity to work on a research project at this facility.
The programme director is Professor Martin Cryan from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
The Department's taught degree programmes are all accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
