Offer 1 with catalog number 4019809ENR for all students in the 1st semester at a (E) Master - advanced level.
Engineers and scientists build models to understand, describe, predict and control the behaviour of the environment. In order to create these models it is necessary to combine the mathematical models with (noisy) measurements.
A selection of advanced data-driven modelling and estimation techniques is discussed. At the end of the course, the students should be able to select the appropriate tool for each problem, understand the influence of the tuneable parameters, and implement them on simple practical problems.
Also, an introduction is given to the measurement of very high frequency signals and systems. In addition to a sound theoretical basis, we will also provide the students with hands-on experiences in the labs.
Lecture notes are available that cover the complete material, including the labs.
To successfully complete the course, you are expected to master theoretic concepts.
Since for an engineer practical application of the material is crucial, you are also expected to
Factors that determine the judgement
This course contributes to the following programme outcomes of the Master in Electronics and Information Technology Engineering:

The Master in Engineering Sciences can
4. reformulate complex engineering problems in order to solve them (simplifying assumptions, reducing complexity)
6. correctly report on research or design results in the form of a technical report or in the form of a scientific paper
8. collaborate in a (multidisciplinary) team
9. work in an industrial environment with attention to safety, quality assurance, communication and reporting
10. develop, plan, execute and manage engineering projects at the level of a starting professional
11. think critically about and evaluate projects, systems and processes, particularly when based on incomplete, contradictory and/or redundant information
The Master in Engineering Sciences has
12. a creative, problem-solving, result-driven and evidence-based attitude, aiming at innovation and applicability in industry and society
13. a critical attitude towards one's own results and those of others
16. an attitude of life-long learning as needed for the future development of his/her career
The Master in Electronics and Information Technology Engineering:
17. Has an active knowledge of the theory and applications of electronics, information and communication technology, from component up to system level.
18. Has a profound knowledge of either (i) nano- and opto-electronics and embedded systems, (ii) information and communication technology systems or (iii) measuring, modelling and control.
19. Has a broad overview of the role of electronics, informatics and telecommunications in industry, business and society.
20. Is able to analyze, specify, design, implement, test and evaluate individual electronic devices, components and algorithms, for signal-processing, communication and complex systems.
21. Is able to model, simulate, measure and control electronic components and physical phenomena.
The final grade is composed based on the following categories:
Oral Exam determines 50% of the final mark.
Practical Exam determines 50% of the final mark.
Within the Oral Exam category, the following assignments need to be completed:
Within the Practical Exam category, the following assignments need to be completed:
Oral examination on the complete material. Emphasis is on the understanding of the material, just reproducing without understanding is not sufficient to succeed.
For some of the labs, a report will be requested. The grading of those labs will be determined from the quality of the report and the oral discussion demonstrating the mastering of the concepts and tools handled in the lab.
The grade in first session of the exam parts (theory or labs) may be transferred to the second session if all following conditions are met:
