Communications and signal processing
The revolution in communications and digital media in recent decades is based on the achievements of electrical and electronic engineers, who managed to solve major problems in signal transmission, propagation and processing. The Communications and Signal Processing Group in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department at Imperial College London consists of 12 academic staff, and around 50 PhD students and 15 post-doctoral researchers, all working on various aspects of communication theory, signal and image processing, and computer vision. From basic methodology to practical applications in healthcare, wellbeing, remote sensing and the environment, the Group is at the forefront of research in these subjects.
The group hosts the Smart Environment Lab (SEL) which is a Faculty facility that offers excellent state of the art facilities for data capture and processing, from a variety of sensors. The Group runs a very successful MSc course in Communications and Signal Processing.
