PhD courses and graduate school

Mandatory PhD courses

The faculty decides which courses, or equivalent competencies, that are required for everyone admitted to PhD studies in Science and Engineering. The faculty also decides about faculty-common courses that are of broad general interest.

  • Ethics
  • Scientific methodology

Mandatory for PhD students who teach

  • Basic learning and knowledge of Higher Education course, or equivalent documented competence. It is mandatory for those who have teaching duties in the undergraduate education during their PhD studies

The Ethics course is preferably taken in the beginning of the PhD studies. The course in Methodology about a year after having begun the studies.

Mandatory courses for each specialization, if any, are listed in the general study syllabus.

Recommended common courses

  • Analog/digital system design
  • Information theory
  • Communication theory
  • Convex optimization
  • Linear systems
  • Matrix theory
  • Signal processing
  • Signal theory
  • Technical report writing
