Spring 2010 Guided Research
Guided Research in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (2009/2010)
What is Guided Research?
Guided research is part of the undergraduate programs in EECS, CS and ECE. The guided research courses are jointly offered by all the respective professors: CS by the Computer Science faculty, ECE by the Electrical Engineering faculty, EECS conjointly. The professors propose a number of research projects, which can be handled within 6 weeks full time (or equivalent distributed time). The list of projects will be posted on the website. Students interested in particular projects should get in touch with the professor in charge of that project. As part of the project the students should prepare a research proposal (5 pages; howto), a final report (20 pages) and present the project in a seminar during the last 2 weeks of the semester.
Warning: There is no graduation without guided research!
Students taking guided research must choose a topic and have it approved by the respective supervisor until 15.Dec.2009. Furthermore, students must register for the guided research course on campus.net.
- Guided Research Electrical Engineering (300342)
- Guided Research Computer Science (320342)
There will be groups corresponding to the respective supervisors, which must be chosen.
Students are encouraged to also register for the guided research proposal course
- Guided Research Proposal Electrical Engineering (300361)
- Guided Research Proposal Computer Science (320371)
2009-12-15 Deadline for selecting the topic and the supervisor (faculty member) 2010-01-15 Research proposal due (5 pages; howto) 2010-05-09 Final report due (by midnight, 20 pages) 2010-05-12 CS: Oral Presentations (15 minutes + 5 minutes discussion) 2010-05-14 EE: Oral Presentations (15 minutes + 5 minutes discussion)
If you take Guided Research in Spring 2010, only:
The final grade for the guided research course will be composed of three partial percentage grades:
- research proposal 15% (grading scheme),
- final report 70% (grading scheme), and
- oral presentation 15% (grading scheme).
Each of the contributions will be graded to a percentage according to the respective grading scheme, the percentages will be combined in a weighted sum as indicated, and then transformed to an Jacobs grade.
If you also take the Guided Research Proposal Course in Fall 2009:
- the grade for the proposal will also be the grade for the guided research proposal course (Fall 2009)
- the final grade for the guided research course (Spring 2010) will be composed of two partial percentage grades:
The research proposal and the final report should be submitted to the supervisor. The student is responsible to make sure that the submission reaches the supervisor in time for the deadline. The research proposal and final report can be submitted electronically by e-mail. For electronic submission, the date of the e-mail counts as the basis for determining timeliness.
Late submissions of the research proposal and the final report will be penalized by a grade reduction of 10 percentage points per day for the contribution. So, for instance in the guided-research-2010-only scenario, if you submit a thesis three days late, that would have netted you 60%, then the thesis will contribute a partial grade of 30%. Thus, even if your proposal and presentation are perfect (100%) your final grade will be at 70%*30%+100%*15%+100%*15%=51%, you will be very close to failing your guided research!
Presentations of guided research projects will be on Wednesday, May 12, 2010. Slots are assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. To apply for a slot, contact Jürgen Schönwälder and send him your preferred list of time slots, the name of your supervisor, and the title of your talk. Before submitting the list, make sure that the time slots fit the schedule of your supervisor.

Students taking guided research in 2010 have to choose their guided research topic by the end of 2009 to get started early. It is generally recommended to get engaged in research as early as possible since that gives an additional perspective on your major. The table below lists some topics. It is also possible to propose a topic. But in this case, you have to approach a faculty member and convince him.
In case you like to know more about a topic listed below, please go and see the respective faculty member.
