The goal of this course is to expose students to multiresolution signal processing methods and their use in practical applications as well as to guide them through the steps of the research process. The course is roughly divided in two parts: 1. The first part introduces the necessary mathematical tools with a great emphasis on intuitive understanding of how they operate on real-life signals. 2. The second part is project-based, where, through a project, students will learn how to choose a research area, formulate a problem, research previous work, propose solutions, carry out experiments and interpret results. The focus is on training students to become researchers. To that end, students will write papers in a standard conference format, rehearse presentations with feedback from both the instructor and other students in the class, as well as present projects in a seminar-like setting. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
There will be 2-3 hours of pre-recorded video per week that can be viewed online at any time. There will also be two 1-hour sessions in person that are not mandatory and can be viewed later online. The instructor will also be available for meetings in person or online as needed. The total amount of work per week is expected to be around 12 hours on average.
The students are expected to have a good background in basic engineering mathematics, signal processing and linear algebra.
