New Master in Signal Theory and Communications (MSTC)

Welcome to MSTC

ETSIT – Telecommunication Engineering School – at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) currently offers an Official Master Program in Signal Theory and Communications (MSTC).

Students can choose between three tracks to meet their academic needs and achieve their personal and professional objectives. The first two tracks offer advanced training in Radiofrequency and Radiocomunications and Multimedia where the Signals, Systems and Radiocommunications Department at ETSIT-UPM has a unique expertise. The third track offers a cutting-edge program in Signal Processing and Machine Learning for Big Data designed to address the increasing demand for professionals and researchers with the right skills to extend Big Data and Analytics paradigms to applications that scale to massive signals and multimedia data.

Graduates, master students and professionals are encouraged to visit our web page or contact directly at

​​RF Technologies and Systems

Learn about the last advances in radiofrequency technologies and their application to communication systems. You will be able to design such communication subsystems as transmitters, receivers, synthesyzers and antennas.

Radiocommunications and multimedia

This track provides an integrated profile in radiocommunications and multimedia emphasizing most hot technological areas where our department is leading industrial transfer and basic research.

Signal Processing and Machine Learning for Big Data

The track program has been designed to provide the scientific foundations and major technological challenges for extracting knowledge from the increasing number of real-world signals, such as speech, images, movies, music, biological and sensor readings, financial series, etc., as well as data provided by current and future communication systems.

Code: face recognition in depth imagery

The code of the publication "Visual Face Recognition using Bag of Dense Derivative Depth Patterns" has been realeased. This code performs face recognition using depth information. The key is the the computation of a new "bag_d3p" feature descriptor, which is delivered to a SVM for the classification task. More information in [Link].

Sony’s prototype projector turns any tabletop into a touch-sensitive display

[From The Verge]

Sony’s Future Lab is a R&D group responsible for taking crazy ideas into the prototype phase, and one impressive vision shown here at SXSW in Austin this week is a projector that turns any flat surface into a screen for light to play on. The “Interactive Tabletop” concept uses depth sensors and motion tracking to know when objects are placed on the table and even bring storybooks to life. The project looks like a …

New database: PIROPO (People in Indoor ROoms with Perspective and Omnidirectional cameras)

The PIROPO database [Link] (People in Indoor ROoms with Perspective and Omnidirectional cameras) comprises multiple sequences recorded in two different indoor rooms, using both omnidirectional and perspective cameras. The sequences contain people in a variety of situations, including people walking, standing, and sitting. Both annotated and non-annotated sequences are provided, where ground truth is point-based (each person in the scene is represented by the point located in the center of its head). In total, more than 100,000 annotated frames are available.
