Multimedia Technology

Interest in multimedia and information technologies is rapidly growing
because of the ever increasing importance of interactive visual
information (e.g. the Internet) in the home and workplace. Multimedia
technologies are expected to be one of the most active areas of
innovation and development for the early 21st century.

The Course

This course responds to the growing demand for personnel skilled in
the creation, management and support of multimedia technologies, by
bringing together engineering, software and applications topics
centred on digital networks. The course is run jointly by the Schools
of Electronic & Electrical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, with
equal numbers of units offered from each. In addition the School of
Management supplies one unit.

The Course Structure

The course consists of two semesters of lecture-based material (10
units in total), each followed by written examinations. Candidates who
succeed in the examinations then undertake individual projects which
are assessed for the MSc. The course lasts one complete year of full-
time study. The following units are compulsory:

o Digital Communications
o Digital Networks and Protocols
o Digital Video and Audio
o Digital Image Processing
o Multimedia
o Human-Computer Interaction and Virtual Reality
o Formal Methods and Programming
o Projects and their Management

In addition, students must take one of the following, to extend their
background knowledge.
