Credits 4
Semesters Winter
Completion Exam
Language of teaching English
Extent of teaching 2P+2C
The course deals with the processing of biosignals and advanced methods of processing resulting from current research in solving common projects in cooperation with top institutions (medical faculties, institutes of the ASCR, foreign universities). The subject concept allows us to respond flexibly to new directions and knowledge in the field.
Study targets
The aim of the study is to gain knowledge of advanced methods of biological signal processing.
