Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.


Students are able to recognize the problems of processing data of large scale problems that arise in engineering and computer science. Students can describe the basic theory of such problems, concentrating on results that are useful in computation. Students have a thorough understanding of how such problems are thought of and addressed, and some experience in solving them. Students can apply the methods in their own research work. Students know a number of examples of successful application of the techniques for signal processing of large scale data. More detailed and revised learning outcomes are presented at the beginning of the course.
