SGN-16006 Bachelor's Laboratory Course in Signal Processing

Spring 2015

[Suomeksi][Summer 2014]


Moodle webpage: Laboratory exercise instructions and other course material is moved to course Moodle page. Exercise reports must be returned to Moodle. This webpage will still include updated information about the course in general and exercise deadlines.

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, registration in POP). 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 gives an introduction to academic writing. 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 Kaisa Liimatainen (kaisa.liimatainen <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.
