Modules in Communications Engineering - StuPO 2010/PO 2013

The information in this section is for M.Sc. students whose programs fall under StuPo 2010/PO 2013. For M.Sc. students under StuPo 2015, please click here or here. Please make sure to choose the correct MSc program (ET or TI) as course requirements may differ. Also, please note that some courses/modules are no longer offered and may be found in the archive section. 

Teaching Modules from the Communications and Information Theory Group


Courses are as self-contained as possible insofar as the specific required background is concerned. However, a standard background in electrical engineering (in particular signals and systems) and/or computer science at the undergraduate level is required. Specifically, this includes calculus, functions of complex variables, linear algebra, elementary probability theory, signals and systems, Fourier analysis and time-frequency representation, and basic programming (some knowledge of C/C++, writing simple functions, ow-charts, for-end loops).



Each course in each  M.Sc. module comprises 3 ECTS. According to the standard accounting of student working hours, this means that each course is formed by (approximately) 30 hours of classroom time, 30 hours of directed work outside of the classroom (e.g., projects and homework) and 30 hours of individual study in preparation for the exam, for a total of 90 hours of work per course.



For each module, the requirements are fulfilled through a "portfolio" evaluation consisting of  the collection of successfully passed exams from the required and elective courses. Each course has its own exam format, established by the course instructor according to the specific nature of the course. Final exams may be in the form of written tests (a set of problems and/or multiple choice questions), oral project presentations, oral examinations on theoretical questions, oral presentations of selected research papers, and so on.

Each course is comprised of teaching in the classroom (mainly exposing theory), problem solving sessions in the classroom, and homework/projects outside the classroom. The organization of each course with respect to these components is left up to the discretion of the instructor, according to the needs of each specific course.
