Assessment
***********************
Exam 60% + Coursework 40%
Exam: This is a two-hour closed-book exam which normally consists of 5-6 questions.
Coursework: You are required to group with 2-3 fellow students to complete a course project together.
Bonus: A few problems will be released in three tutorial classes. The student who can correctly demonstrate the solution in class will get the corresponding bonus points (i.e., every * denotes 1 point). The accumulated bonus points will be counted into your final score of coursework.
More about the course project:
You are required to finish a survey on an advanced topic in wireless communications. To demonstrate your understanding of the topic, you need to give a 20-minute presentation (50%) and submit a final report (50%) in the end of the semester.
