Signal Processing and Acoustics

Signal Processing and Acoustics

The Master of Science in engineering programme “Signal Processing and Acoustics” at Aalborg University is a two-year, research-based full-time study programme of 120 ECTS. The programme has two specialisations; Signal Processing and Computing and Acoustics and Audio Technology.

Specialisation in Signal Processing and Computing

This specialisation focuses on theories, methods and algorithms for advanced signal processing applied to a variety of application domains, such as wireless communication, speech recognition, hearing aids, positioning, audio and video and health care. You will learn to design, simulate, test, evaluate and document signal processing systems, optimise the performance of algorithms and implementation platforms, use sensor models in system simulations and integrate DSP algorithms into real-time hardware/software architectures.

Specialisation in Acoustics and Audio Technology

Acoustics is the science of sound and embraces all aspects of the generation, transmission, propagation and possible effects on humans, including how sound is perceived. You will be provided with classical and modern aspects of physical acoustics, psycho-acoustics and electro-acoustics. Methods within signal processing, psychometry, building and room acoustics, tests of human hearing and perception are all integral disciplines in the specialisation, enabling a contemporary understanding and utilisation of state-of-the-art sound and audio technology.

As a student, you will have access to facilities of a very high standard, incl. anechoic rooms, standard listening rooms, listening cabins, audiometry room, infrasound chamber, an auditory virtual reality workbench and high quality measurement equipment and signal processing equipment.
