If you are focussing to carry on a research career in either Image processing, signal processing for biomedical, industrial or computer vision applications, the MSc in Digital Image and Signal Processing can be an excellent springboard for you.

 

My former work experience and the recent degree I achieved from University of Manchester have leaded me to my current position as an academic. Also, I have secured one of the PDS awards by UoM for my PhD studies to be started from September, 2013. It mainly involve conducting theoretical and practical classes, supervising final year students their dissertation projects, organizing seminars on current researches at the university etc.

I truly enjoy sharing my knowledge with my students; I love the challenge, and I love the scope of inspiring them not only academically but also personally. Moreover, as a teacher I conceptually grow every day with better insight and wider perspective.

This MSc course integrates some wonderful course modules on Digital Communication, digital Image Engineering, and Tomography Engineering and applications. The Laboratory work associated with these modules has facilitated me to have a clear perception on the subject area.

I believe that as a student and academic, I have learned to be analytic, critical and active. Now I understand better my limitations, problem areas and I am more enthusiastic and competent as a researcher.  The experience during the course has also contributed to my insights into ‘being a teacher’ as I have keenly observed the teaching methodology of my supervisor and lecturers’ at the University of Manchester. 

If you are focussing to carry on a research career in either Image processing, signal processing for biomedical, industrial or computer vision applications, the MSc in Digital Image and Signal Processing can be an excellent springboard for you.

This one year MSc is pretty intensive in nature. So prepare yourself to study enough to get the grade you want. It includes frequent laboratory works, assignments; case studies that will help you understand the subject better. Regular study and time management is incredibly important as you have to submit each of your work on Blackboard within specific deadlines. Make sure to find about the blackboard system at the very starting of the semester in case you are new to it. Being able to produce your own work is a vital point here, as UoM is very strict about plagiarism.

It’s best to be as involved as possible, ask people in your classes to form study groups, this will surely help you in studies and you can have fun with them at the same time. You can also visit your academic advisor or faculty members during office hours when you are having hard times with the class materials; I found them to be really helpful. During the Dissertation period, make sure to use every chance to discuss your research with your supervisor, fellow researchers to make it a useful experience for you. Use your resources, ask questions and don’t hesitate to ask for help when needed.  

University of Manchester is quite amazing a campus with campus organizations like International Society, Students Services Centre, students union and many others to help you around and encompass your social needs while living here. So, if you are focussed and hard working, your effort for this degree is going to be worthy and blissful for your future career.
