5 ECTS credits.
|Language of instruction
The course unit is held in the autumn semester, during period 2. It is recommended to complete the course at the master’s degree level.
After completing the course, student:
- knows about special characteristics of the biosignals and typical signal processing methods
- can solve small-scale problems related to biosignal analysis
- implement small-scale MATLAB software for signal processing algorithms.
Biomedical signals. Digital filtering. Analysis in time-domain and frequency domain. Nonstationarity. Event detection. Signal characterization.
|Mode of delivery
Face-to-face teaching and guided laboratory work. The laboratory work can alternatively be performed on an online system (MathWorks Grader). Student can do the lab works remotely or in the lab using the same online system.
|Learning activities and teaching methods
Lectures 12h, Laboratory work 24h, Self-study for laboratory working and examination 99 h.
Students interested in digital signal processing applications in biomedical engineering, at their master’s level studies.
|Prerequisites and co-requisites
The mathematic studies of the candidate degree program of computer science and engineering, or equivalent. Programming skills, especially basics of the MATLAB. Basic knowledge of digital signal processing.
|Recommended optional programme components
The course is an independent entity and does not require additional studies carried out at the same time.
|Recommended or required reading
The course is based on selected chapters of the book "Biomedical Signal Analysis", R.M Rangayyan, 2nd edition (2015). + Lecture slides + Task assignment specific material.
|Assessment methods and criteria
Face-to-face lectures. Students solve the programming problems in the laboratory work independently, supervised by assistants. The MathWorks Grader online system is used for programming tasks and it also verifies the completed tasks. Written examination.
