Subject description


  • Enrolment into the 2nd year of the Masters study programme in Electrical Engineering

Content (Syllabus outline):

Brief introduction to different topics and problems in Biomedical Engineering; selecting a research problem from the list of problems. Guided and supervised progression through various steps of the research project: problem study, literature overview, study of existing solutions, and proposal of novel solutions. The students will report in a written and oral form after each step.

Objectives and competences:

To prepare the students for independent research that will be required for completing the MS Thesis.

Intended learning outcomes:
