General Information

The Department of Signal Theory and Communications (TSC), Barcelona Tech (UPC), offers a comprehensive PhD programme oriented to the scientific formation in the following areas:

  • Communications with physical and radio support
  • Study of phenomena associated to the generation, propagation and radiation of electromagnetic signals at frequencies ranging from RF/microwave to optical wavelength
  • Basic techniques of the signal processing and its applications to communications, voice and image processing
  • Telecommunication systems and networks

There is a close connection between teaching contents and research carried out at the department. The department’s experimental facilities are intensively use in teaching activities as well as in research.

The research areas are developed within international networks and European projects with a great number of national and international partners. These collaborations always involve directly or indirectly PhD students, since the research that they carry out is integrated into these projects. The Signal Theory and Communications (TSC) program has repeatedly obtained different distinctions of quality and internationality of the Spanish and Catalan administrations.

The PhD program was awarded with the Quality Mention of the ANECA (National Agency of Evaluation of the Quality and Credentials). It also obtained mobility grants from the Ministry of Education and Science, which have allowed carrying out courses by internationally recognized professors.
