MSc degree programme at the Institute of Signal Processing and Wireless Communications (ISC)

The Institute of Signal Processing and Wireless Communications offers MSc degree programmes in three profiles: Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Photonics.

Electrical Engineering

ln the Electrical Engineering MSE profile at the ISC, students develop a fundamental understanding of Electronic and Radio Frequency Technology, Digital Signal Processing and/or Wireless Communications.

Computer Science

In the Computer Science profile, students gain competences in the conception, development and implementation of innovative ICT systems. The focus areas of this practical specialisation at the ISC comprise applications and projects in the fields of digital signal and image processing, including data fusion and machine learning, and wireless communication, including information theory and wireless systems (e.g. for IoT). This allows students to help shape the technical basis for increasingly digitised information and knowledge processing.

In the Photonics profile at the ISC, students also work with the IAMP as they acquire a fundamental understanding of issues at the interface between optics, electronics and digital signal processing. Design, metrological validation and the application of optoelectronic components (LEDs, OLEDs, lasers, photodiodes), as well as optical measuring and imaging procedures and their digital evaluation methods, form the core of the specialised practical training at the ISC.

Development of an algorithm for gait analysis

The computer-assisted recording of human movements, such as steps, is connected with many challenges. In order to improve a measuring method that has been rather inaccurate until now, an algorithm for gait analysis was developed at the Institute of Signal Processing and Wireless Communications. It is now possible to measure steps using acceleration and rotation-rate sensors. 

Implementation of RFID readers for fairly long distances

RFID chips are widespread. Their use becomes problematic if the spatial distance between the reader and the information carrier is more than a few metres. Since more energy is then required for the reading, interference is caused by crosstalk from the transmission signal to the receiver. Within the framework of this MSc thesis, this problem was investigated in more detail and solved in a practical manner.
