The Communications Engineering department of the University
of Málaga (UMA) consists of more than 130 people (50 academic
staff and 80 research fellows and research assistants) working in the
signal processing and communications fields.
Most of our teaching activity is carried out at the Faculty of Telecommunication Engineering of the UMA, where the department collaborates in its undergraduate degrees, masters and Ph. D. program, whose quality is recognized by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation of Spain (ANECA).
The department pursues an intense research activity in multiple information and communications technology areas. The wide range of research topics includes: design and integration of devices in photonic and microwave technologies, digital transmission techniques for different channels (optical, mobile, power line and acoustic), digital signal processing for communications and multimedia applications, automatic testing systems, location and positioning systems, network optimization and management, network security, etc. These activities are organized by the research groups: the Communications Engineering group, the Application of Information and Communications Technologies group and the Digital Image Processing in Radiology group.
The above research activities and the technology transfer process are accomplished through collaborations, projects and consortia with numerous national and international research institutions and companies.
