ENGP040 INTERMEDIATE LEVEL ENGLISH-I 0 0 0
INTERMEDIATE (CEFR Level B1 – Threshold) LEVEL is in the group of Independent User. At the end of this level, those who are successful will understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc.; will deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken; produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest; will describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.
ENGP050 INTERMEDIATE LEVEL ENGLISH-II 0 0 0
INTERMEDIATE PLUS (CEFR Level B1+ - Strong Threshold) LEVEL is in the group of Independent User. At the end of this level, those who are successful will understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc.; will deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken; produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest; will describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.
ENGP060 UPPER-INTERMEDIATE LEVEL ENGLISH 0 0 0
UPPER-INTERMEDIATE (CEFR Level B2 - Vantage) LEVEL is in the group of Independent User. At the end of this level, those who are successful will understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation; will interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party; will produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
ENGP070 ADVANCED LEVEL ENGLISH 0 0 0
ADVANCED (CEFR Level C1 – Effective Operational) LEVEL is in the group of Proficient User. At the end of this level, those who are successful will understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning; will express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions; will use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes; will produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.

BASC501 RESEARCH METHODS 3 3 0
This course introduces students to research methods and contemporary issues related to research in a university setting. Students will be introduced to research proposal development, scientific literature reviews, measurement analysis, statistical data analysis, and research planning techniques, good research practice, and oral and written research communication. Ethics and intellectual property topics related to research will also be covered. During this course, students will evaluate the broad impact of their engineering research and relevant constraints and data analysis skills. Also students will research, plan, execute and evaluate a self-defined research project. Research will focus on the Engineering Themes of Energy, Water, Health or Security.

BASC590 SEMINAR 0 0 0
Seminar course is designed to promote research interest in various areas of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Students are expected to further advance and deepen their knowledge regarding research methods through discussions of research results made in their fields of specialization. Students will make presentations on the progress of their research and will hold discussions with teachers to expand the range of their research. An additional objective of the research seminars is to nurture global IT specialists by having students make presentations at national or international conferences. Students are required to attend both research seminars and conferences for developing their research ability. Master students must register and fulfill departmental requirements of the seminar.
ELCE561 ADVANCED COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS 3 3 0
This course provides a basic introduction to the various building blocks of a modern digital communications system, focusing on the physical layer (PHY). Random signals and noise. Stochastic processes. Correlation functions, stationary and ergodicity of stochastic processes. Power spectral density. Transmission of noise signals through linear systems. Basic concepts in digital communications, including Shannon theory, Nyquist sampling theory, optimal detection under Gaussian white noise, and basic modulations. Noise analysis and comparison of AM, FM and PM techniques. Matched filtering. ASK and QAM. FSK and PSK systems. Several building blocks of a digital receiver, including time and frequency synchronization, adaptive equalization and precoding, and error-correction coding/decoding. Some advanced communication technologies such as Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO).

ELCE500 THESIS 0 0 0
Program of research leading to M.Sc. degree, arranged between student and a faculty member. Students register for this course in all semesters starting from the beginning of their third semester while the research program or write-up of thesis is in progress. A Master’s thesis gives a student the opportunity to attack a specific problem and gain more in-depth knowledge. This problem should be large and interesting enough to justify requirements of electrical and electronic engineering master programme. The supervisor is responsible for the general coordination. The thesis report is the most tangible outcome of the Master’s thesis, apart from implementations and research results.
