FEM3300 Research Seminars in Signal Processing I 5.0 credits

This is a seminar course where on-going and recent research results in signal processing are presented and discussed. The course is one hour per week and extends over two academic years. The presentations are given by the participating students. The topics are selected by the students in coordination with their advisors. They typically revolve around the student’s PhD research subject or other hot topics in the field. This is the  first course in a series of two, typically taken by PhD students in years 1 and 2 of their studies.
