Course staff

Lecturers

Teaching fellow

  • Homeworks, quizzes, as well as project proposals and presentation slides must be submitted before their respective deadlines to 曾纓喻 

Evaluation

  • 6 5 Homework problem sets (36% 30%)
  • 4 Quizzes (4%)
  • Midterm exam (30% 40%)
  • Final (programming) project (30%)

Final project

We will provide a set of problems for final projects before the end of week 9 (Physical design 1).  Typical problems will involve some computer programming, and you will need to write a small program (typically a few hundreds lines of code in C/C++ or fewer in MATLAB) to solve your problem.  You are strongly encouraged to discuss with one or more lecturers as early as possible to get a better idea of the problems that you might want to work on.

You are to work as teams of two.  Each team must submit a proposal before the end of week 13 (Testing 2) week 15 (Emerging topics 2).  Each team must give a short, about 10-minute presentation on week 18 (Project presentation).
