EQ272X/EQ275X - Master’s Degree Project in Signal Processing/Communication Theory
About 30 students each year do their Master's degree projects in signal processing and communication theory at Electrical Engineering, KTH. Most projects are performed in collaboration with companies, but it is also possible to do internal projects in the department or at universities abroad.
We can offer fun and challenging internal projects, both theoretical projects as well as more practically oriented.
Several of the previous projects have received prizes, resulted in patented inventions, products, and some results have been published at international scientific conferences.
Searching for a project
In general the students have to find their own Thesis projects. Look at company homepages where projects are announced. There are also databases with projects. The department has contact with some companies and also offers some internal projects. Note that most of our internal projects are topics in which one or more projects can be formed.
Found a project?
If you have found a project in the industry, please contact the Thesis coordinator (for contact information see below). Please enclose a description of the project, and your transcript, in PDF format. We will then see if the topic is suitable for Signal Processing/Communication Theory, and assign a supervisor and an examiner to you.
If you have found an interesting project among our internal projects, please talk to the contact person to obtain more detailed information.
Requirements and Guidelines
In short, here is a list of requirements that have to be fulfilled to pass this course successfully.
- Attend at least two thesis presentations. These seminars are announced by mail about a week in advance.
- Act as opponent on another thesis project. The opposition includes two parts: 1. A written report that the defendant's examiner has to approve. The report should include a summary of the technical content (about one page) and a page of critical questions; 2. An oral presentation which should be held in such a way that a discussion between the opponent and the defendant occurs. If you have questions ask your supervisor or the thesis coordinator (for contact information see below).
- A 15-20 minutes oral presentation of the thesis, and an oral discussion with the opponent.
- The written report is completed when the examiner approves it.
If you attend presentations and/or act as opponent at other departments, please make sure that the following form is signed:
