IK2511 Project in Wireless Networks 7.5 credits

Projekt i trådlösa nät

The course involves student project with the aim is to broaden or deepen the knowledge in wireless systems of the participants. An important ingredient in systems design is to grasp the whole width of problems that are involved in designs in the real world and then formulate a sequence of detailed specific problems that can be treated by the tools of engineering science that the student already carries. For this purpose, we have specified the problems from a telecommunication user perspective rather than in mathematical, ''technical'' terms. Also the this part of the course prepares the student for thesis project and for project work in industry. The projects is carried out by group of 3-4 students. The project group is to write a project report (15-20 pages), give an oral presentation (15 min) and review the work of another group ("opposition"). At the oral presentation all group members should be able to present the work of the group.

Intended learning outcomes

The main objective of the course is to deepen and/or broaden the student knowledge and abilities in radio communication systems.

Upon completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • solve a research problem in radio communication and present the obtained results
  • write technical reports and make oral presentations
  • review other projects in the area and lead a discussion about the results
  • work in groups
  • identify relevant milestones and write a time plan for a small project
  • read through the literature and make a literature study about the research subject
  • carry out an M.Sc. thesis project in radio communication
  • carry out a project work in industry.

Course main content

Disposition

The projects is carried out by groups of 3-4 students. The project group is to write a project report, give an oral presentation and review the work of another group ("opposition"). At the oral presentation all group members should be able to present the work of the group.

An important ingredient in systems design is to grasp the whole width of problems that are involved in designs in the real world and then formulate a sequence of detailed specific problems that can be treated by the tools of engineering science that the student already carries. For this purpose, the project problems are specified from a telecommunication user perspective rather than in mathematical, ''technical'' terms.

From a strictly technical perspective, the project problems are in most cases quite "loosely" specified. Your first objective will therefore be to make a more detailed formulation of the problem that you will find relevant to solve. You will have to ask yourselves:

  • What questions do we need to answer?
  • What additional information is required?
  • What assumptions need to be made?

Your advisor will discuss these matters with you, direct you to the relevant literature and may also provide you with additional information, wherever this may become necessary. You should, however, note that the problem formulation and finding out what you should do is your job.
