Master Seminar on Selected Topics in Wireless Networking [MS]

L.079.08014, Winter 2017/2018


This seminar is being offered as part of the "Master Seminar" series, each issue of which treats current topics in the context of active research domains. The seminar discusses a variety of topics of students' choice in the area of wireless mobile communication. Every semester, a more specific scope of the seminar is selected (e.g., traffic management in the LTE networks, green wireless networking, etc.). Within this technical scope, students are invited to provide their own proposals of interesting problems they would like to work on in the seminar. The main tasks students are expected to fulfill include: identification of the most important out of recent research works that are related to the seminar topic, classification of collected research articles according to a well-motivated taxonomy, identification of the most important open issues to be solved, and view on further research directions.

Learning Outcome

The main objective of this module is to improve the technical knowledge in the area of communication networks, and in particular, students will gain a deeper understanding of specific technologies and their characteristics (basic functionality, adjustments to user requirements, etc.). Students will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of specific communication technologies (UMTS/LTE, Internet, multimedia, ad-hoc, sensor networks, etc.). This course will also provide a possibility to improve the knowledge of the overlapping areas of many different communication technologies that will be discussed from different perspectives (wireless communication, high-speed networks). Additionally, during the seminars students will have the opportunity to elaborate on the chosen technology or technology-oriented problem and discuss it in front of a bigger audience. This will help to develop practical presentation skills as well as critical thinking.
