ET1205 Applied Signal Processing

Single subject course, 7.5 ECTS credits, First cycle, spring semester 2012
This course occasion will not start spring semester 2012!

Overview

The objective with the course is that the students obtain both a practical background to, and insight into, basic digital signal processing. The course extends the basic course in signal processing through introducing applied signal processing problems with a focus on filtration, filter design, and spectrum estimation. The aim and direction of several of the problems is audio/acoustic.

Learning methods

The course is a self-instruction course and is based on a number of compulsory project assignments. The project assignments consist of theoretical problems and programming assignments. The student works independently with the assignments with supervision from the teacher. The assignments are carried out individually or in a group. Upon request a few introductory lectures/exercises/opportunities to ask questions may be given in order for the students to familiarize themselves with the subject.

Work placement

No work placement is included in the planned learning activities. BTH is aiming for a close contact with the surrounding community when developing courses and programmes.

Planned learning activities

Exercises and laboratory sessions.

Time allocation

On average, a student should study 200 hours to reach the learning outcomes. This time includes all the various available learning activities (lectures, self studies, examinations, etc.). This estimation is based on the fact that one academic year counts as 60 ECTS credits, corresponding to an average student workload of 1 600 hours. This may vary individually.

Grading

The course will be graded Fail, Pass, 3, 4 or 5 .

On request grades according to ECTS will be given.

Future exams

No upcoming, centrally coordinated, examinations for this course were found.

To participate in a centrally coordinated examination, you must enroll in Student's Portal, no later than fifteen days before the examination.

Time and location for the examination will be published about 5 days in advance.

There might be other scheduled examinations. Information concerning these examinations are available in It's Learning or at other places that the person who is responsible of the course will refer to.

Course Evaluation

The course manager is responsible for the views of students on the course being systematically and regularly gathered and that the results of the evaluations in various forms affect the form and development of the course.
