MSc Multimedia Systems

Multimedia is the convergence and integration of various types of digital media, including images, sound, video, text, graphics and animations.
The MSc Multimedia Systems responds to a growing skills shortage in industry for engineers with a high level of training in multimedia technologies, and in particular to support broadcast, entertainment, surveillance, gaming, internet, communications and consumer industries. The MSc Multimedia Systems not only focuses on digital signal processing and multimedia communications, but also includes topics on Advanced Multimedia Applications, Image & Video Processing, Digital Broadcasting, Multimedia Data Retrieval and Game Technology. Emphasis is placed on a learn-by-doing approach which gives the students the opportunity to put in practice what they learn in the lectures.
