SGN-16006 Bachelor's Laboratory Course in Signal Processing

Spring 2014, P3-4

[Suomeksi][Summer 2014]


Comments: Comments for the lab reports for exercises 2 and 4-6 that were sent by 11.5.2014 will be available on 18.5.2014.

Exercise 2 and 6: The deadline for the exercises of the lab TF304 extended; the new deadline is 18.5.2014.

Schedule: In 2013-2014, the laboratory course SGN-16006 is offered during the spring term (P3-4). The course lectures (2 x 2h) will be in January 2014.

Improve your writing skills: The lab course can be studied together with the English course KIE-34106 Academic Writing in English (group 9 primarily for the lab course students, POP registration). At the English course you can work on the laboratory course reports. Note: SGN-16006 can also be studied separately from KIE-34106.


Lectures (2 x 2h) are in January:

At the first lecture, the course organization and the laboratory exercises are briefly introduced. The second lecture, introduction to academic writing, is meant for all the SGN-16006 students, regardless of whether they take the course KIE-34106 or not. The lectures give a good opportunity to find a pair if you don't already have one.

The person responsible for the general matters of the course is Hanna Silen (hanna.silen <at>, room TF317.


The aim of the course is to familiarize the students to signal processing methods in practice and to develop the students' problem solving capability in tasks resembling those that can be encountered in real life.

Contents and passing the course

Doing four laboratory exercises is required to pass this course. The exercises are preferably to be done in groups of two but also groups of one person are accepted. All the four laboratory exercises must be done during the spring 2014 (P3-4).

Course SGN-16006 replaces courses Signal processing and multimedia laboratory, SGN-1606 Signaalinkäsittelyn ja multimedian työkurssi, and 8006053 Signaali- ja systeemitekniikan laboratoriokurssi.

Laboratory exercises

There are six laboratory exercises from which you can select four.

It is recommended that the pattern classification exercise is done after taking the course Introduction to Pattern Recognition.

Report writing

Academic writing lecture slides:

New report templates (updated 22.1.2014): LaTeX, .doc.

Reports can be written in English or Finnish.


The course is passed when four laboratory exercises have beed returned and accepted. The laboratory exercise reports must be returned by the end of the 4th period.
