Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
They are able to apply basic signal processing techniques to solve specific problems (filtering and analysis of data from mobile accelerometry/ECG). They also should be able to understand the scientific method to conduct exploratory research generating and testing hypothesis, looking at events, collecting data, analyzing information and reporting the results. In addition, it is expected that they improve their written and oral communications skills by the creation of a scientific report and holding a public presentation.

Description of exams and course work
In general, a project encompasses these tasks: study design, data collection, algorithm development and validation, data analysis and summary of results.
Students should prepare a report (maximum 4 pages) including the details of their work as well as a set of slides for the final presentation. The The results will be presented to the audience and defended at the end of the semester. External guests are invited to attend and participate in the final presentation.
The quality of the written report, the presentation and the discussion contribute each as 1/3 of the final grade.
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
