Day Theme

Our aim is to offer an excellent teaching and learning environment which is free to attend. As the course was oversubscribed in previous years and numbers are capped, application to the Summer School requires an applicant selection process.

To ensure that participants are equipped to apply this work to practical solutions, the course will be delivered through traditional lectures and tutorials on set exercises supervised by leading experts in the field.


The objectives of the Summer School are to:

  • Fill a gap in knowledge for signal processing engineering research students and industrial practitioners.
  • Facilitate the process of taking new theoretical developments into practical engineering applications.
  • Create a focal point for research in Signal Processing for Defence
  • Stimulate new collaborations in this field.

There will also be ample opportunity to network at the UDRC Summer School social events.


The Lecture will take place in Lecture Theatre M, in the Lecture Theatre Block marked LT on the campus map
