Course specific prerequisites

Students that are eligible for this course are enrolled in the MPEES master's programme and have successfully completed all elements of the following courses: Introduction to electronic system design or Design of digital electronic systems, Introduction to integrated circuit design, and Methods for electronic system design and verification.

In contrast to regular Master's courses, this course has a focus on individual, advanced training. Hence, there is a limit to the number of students that can be accepted to this course.

Aim

One purpose of this course is to offer the student an opportunity to dig deeper into a selected topic of advanced electronic system design, ranging from circuit design to embedded software design. Another purpose is to give the student a chance to learn the basic trades of research work, which is a skill that can prove useful already during the coming master thesis work.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

1. describe state of the art of a selected topic in the field of electronic system design
2. describe the main phases of research work: planning, execution, revision and documentation/dissemination
3. independently perform a research prestudy in the form of a literature study or a limited research assignment

Content

There are three different formats of this course:

F1. Individual work on a relevant research assignment
F2. Individual work on literature study on a relevant topic
F3. Activity in a regular PhD student course in a relevant area

Organisation

The course organization depends on the selected course format (see Content). For a student that follows a regular PhD student course (F3), no participation in the activities below is required. For a student that intends to do a research assignment (F1) or a literature study (F2), the following information applies:

The course spans study period 1 (SP1) and 2 (SP2), during which the student works in an independent manner.

Prior to the start of the course, the student must 1) identify the course topic and 2) find a Chalmers supervisor. The supervisor is expected to provide guidance throughout the course; at the very minimum, this involves endorsing the work plan and reading/commenting/grading the final report.

In the beginning of SP1, each student taking the course in SP1 is required to hand in, to the examiner, a work plan that defines the scope and the goal of the assignment/study. Similarly, in the beginning of SP2, each student taking the course in SP2 is required to hand in, to the examiner, a work plan that defines the scope and the goal of the assignment/study.

In the end of SP2 (or the beginning of SP3), the students present their work.

Literature

Research papers. Manuals. Datasheets.

Examination including compulsory elements

Assessment of oral presentation and written report (or research paper) at the end of Q2 (or beginning of Q3).
