Course specification
Course title Stochastic Systems and Estimation
Acronym 13E053SSE
Study programme Electrical Engineering and Computing
Module Signals and Systems
Type of study bachelor academic studies
Lecturer (for classes)
Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
    ESPB 6.0 Status mandatory
    Condition Digital signal processing
    The goal Introduce students to basics of stochastic signals and systems, and common estimation procedures. Convey elementary principles by which discrete and continuous stochastic systems operate. Enable students to implement well known estimation procedures on a computer.
    The outcome After passing the exam, students will have the basic skills to properly analyze a stochastic system and will be able to implement and deploy algorithms for parameter estimation.
