The design of sensor systems as well as the processing and interpretation of associated signals/measurements are key requirements for both R&D and product development across a wide range of applications, e.g., industrial, manufacturing, biomedical, security, telecoms, etc.

The MSc programme aims to develop a generation of MSc-qualified professionals by bringing together the unique blend of expertise in the areas of Signals, Imaging and Instrumentation at SEMS. The MSc programme will provide students with a core understanding of the Sensor Systems and generic Signal Processing requirements supported by a choice of more specialist modules relating to specific application areas and industries.

The programme addresses the major technological developments in these areas including: signals and information theory, sensor systems, pattern recognition, digital signal/image processing, soft field imaging, and metrology.

Career Prospects
Signal Processing and Sensor Systems are fundamental disciplines in all advanced technology areas, including manufacturing, aerospace and transport, telecommunications, security, energy, biomedical, and environmental engineering to name just a few. There are many career opportunities for graduates in these areas. In addition, there are opportunities for further study by research leading to the award of the degree of PhD following successful completion of the MSc programme

The course draws on the knowledge and experience of leading experts and active researchers of the Sensors and Instrumentation and the Systems and Control Research Centres of City University London. The program is supported by research in Signal and Image Processing, Sensor Systems, Computer Vision and Intelligent Systems, Tomography, Optoelectronic Systems and Control Theory and Design. This research provides topics for the MSc dissertations and opportunities for further research leading to PhD.

Core modules:
* Signals and information theory
* Measurement and Control
* Pattern Recognition
* Sensor Systems
* Soft Field Imaging
* Digital Image Processing
* Metrology and Applications
* Digital Signal Processing
* Research skills and techniques.

Completion of modules and examinations will lead to the award of a Diploma. The completion of modules, examinations and a dissertation will lead to the award of a Masters degree.

The dissertation is developed in close collaboration with research groups within the Sensors and Instrumentation and Systems and Control Research Centres, as well as other groups in the School at the forefront of their technological field.

The normal requirement is a second class Honours degree or equivalent in an acceptable scientific or engineering discipline or relevant industrial experience.For those students whose first language is not English, one of the following qualifications is also required: * IELTS: 6.5 * TOEFL (internet based): 90 English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL iBT® test: 90 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
