The main object of this course is to connect the different ESS-courses within the block Electronics, Systems and Signals by giving the students a real application to analyse i.e. pacemaker or mobile. The work with this application starts in autumn semester year 1 and is a recurrent feature in all the other ESS-courses, most commonly as exercises. In this way, respect to industrial project work is applied –time planning, reporting, argumentation responsibility and team work.
