Here, you may read descriptions of courses and projects on the Signal Processing and Acoustics Master's programme at Aalborg University. Please also see the curriculum for the master's programme in Signal Processing and Acoustics. Here, you may find details on courses and projects as well as information on the programme’s legal basis, etc.

The programme is comprised by four semesters. The 1st semester is a common, and on the 2nd semester, you must choose a specialisation; Signal Processing and Computing or Acoustics and Audio Technology.

COMPULSORY FOR ALL NON-AAU BACHELORS

All bachelors enrolled in the programme who have not obtained their bachelor's degree from Aalborg University must take part in a course on problem based learning (PBL) as part of the 1st semester project. In case non-AAU bachelors get credit transfer for the 1st semester, they will be asked to take part in the course ensuring that they are trained in working according to the PBL-model. Read more about PBL here.

4th semester; Master's Thesis

In the 4th semester, you either continue working on your master’s thesis, or you start up this work. 

You specialise in a subject of your own interest, as you carry out your master's thesis research project either by yourself or as part of a small group of two-three people.

Specialisation: SIGNAL PROCESSING AND COMPUTING

Specialisation: ACOUSTICS AND AUDIO TECHNOLOGY


Once you have completed your 4th semester, you are Master of Science in Engineering in Signal Processing and Acoustics.

Study Method at AAU - Problem Based Learning

Study Method at AAU - Problem Based Learning

The study method at AAU is called Problem Based Learning (PBL). Together with your fellow students you will work with real life problems by way of problem based project work.
