Master of Engineering in Digital Systems & Telecommunications

Signal Processing
Explore Your Future

This two-year master qualification provides students with specialised knowledge and professional engineering skills to prepare them for a career in information engineering which is at the heart of modern digital systems. Areas of application include microelectronic systems, communication networks, computer vision, audio and acoustic signal processing. The program builds on ANU’s interdisciplinary engineering focus and research expertise to give students the skills to address complex multi-disciplinary problems, while at the same time providing advanced technical knowledge in digital systems and telecommunications engineering.

The program includes specialised courses in signal processing, engineering statistics, wireless communications, embedded systems and information theory. Students also have the opportunity to select electives from across the University, or to extend their technical knowledge into related areas such as computer networking, data analytics, computer vision and robotics.

Work Integrated Learning is an important part of the program and is delivered through the group project.
