Content

The Institut für Hochfrequenztechnik und Elektronik (IHE) is glad to offer Radar and Communication Systems Seminar for students in the coming summer semester 2021. The students can attain 3 SWS/4 ECTS upon successful completion of the elective course.

The seminar provides a unique opportunity to the students for enhancing their presentation techniques and skills, which are often ignored in other courses. The topics are designed in a manner that the students are expected to conduct independent literature research, draw logical conclusions based on their research and cohesively present the gathered information in written and verbal form (Please note that students are not expected to carry out software design and simulations). Ultimately, the seminar can be seen as an excellent preparation platform for facing the future challenges that form an integral part of a scientific/technical career.

What are you supposed to do?

Each student will be allocated a specific topic from the field of Radar and Communication Systems. Additionally, the student will be allocated a supervisor who will track student's progress throughout the course duration. It is mandatory for every student to complete the following tasks:

  1. 5 minute flip chart presentation
  2. Submission of a max. 6 pages written report on the topic
  3. Final oral presentation on the topic (12 - 15 minutes and additionally Q&A round)

The evaluation will be based on sound understanding of the technical aspects, presentation style, Q&A round and authenticity of the written report.

The report and the presentation has to be in english!

Organizational matters will be discussed in the introductory event (see above).
