To foster design innovation and creative thinking, a major part ofthe class grade is based on a design project. The idea of the project is to study one of the current "hot items" in DSP design and to propose, analyze and design a novel solution to one of those problems.The project is performed in person. The course is graded on the basis of a final project and seminar presentation. Given the link to present research activities we expect a number of projects will eventually be published in Conference Proceedings.
