This specialisation of the Signal Processing programme and Acoustics from Aalborg University concentrates on theories, algorithms and methods for advanced signal processing applied to a variety of functions, including speech recognition, positioning, wireless communication, healthcare, hearing aids and audio and video applications.
Students learn how to design, simulate, test, evaluate and document signal processing systems, how to enhance the performance of algorithms and implementation platforms, use sensor models in system simulations and incorporate DSP algorithms into real-time hardware/software architectures.
Acoustics is the science of sound and comprises all aspects of generation, transmission and propagation of sound and its possible influence on people, including sound perception. Students will be taught classical and modern aspects of physical acoustics, psycho-acoustics and electro-acoustics.
In addition, they will learn about signal processing methods, building and room acoustics, tests of human hearing and perception as well as psychometry which are all fundamental subjects in the specialisation. The purpose is for the students to obtain contemporary insight to the field and enable them to utilise of state-of-the-art sound and audio technology.
Students have access to high-standard facilities, including anechoic rooms, infrasound chamber, listening cabins, standard listening rooms, audiometry room, high-quality measurement equipment and signal processing equipment and an auditory virtual reality workbench.
Job and Career
The Signal Processing and Acoustics Master's programme at Aalborg University provides you with skills that pave the way for a very broad range of job opportunities found within areas such as wireless and mobile communication, consumer audio and video, sound and audio products, multimedia, medical aids, instrumentation, automotive applications, avionics, navigation and the financial sector.
