EAI733 Advanced Topics in Intelligent Systems

Semester: First and Second

Research Group: Intelligent Systems

NOTE: Before registering for ANY postgraduate studies as part of the ISG, students MUST discuss potential research topics with one of the ISG study leaders and/or the group leader. Furthermore, no registrations will be accepted later than 2 weeks after the start of the semester.


The EAI733 module is part of the fixed Honours curriculum of the ISG. The goal of this module is to prepare postgraduate engineering students for masters research in a particular sub-field of the broader field of intelligent systems. The official scope of the module is defined as:

The aim of the module is to augment the general background provided by the EAI732 module with the specific theoretical background required for MEng. The module will, depending on the intended research field of the student, incorporate advanced theory from fields such as: Digital Image Processing, Computer and Robotic Vision, Probabilistic Robotics, Data Fusion, Detection and Estimation Theory, Hardware and Software Parallel Processing, Real-Time and Reactive Systems.


Required: EAI732 Intelligent Systems

Note that the EAI733 module is only available to students with an ISG staff member as postgraduate supervisor or co-supervisor.

Prescribed Text

There is no single prescribed text. Based on the intended MEng research field the supervisor / study leader may recommend one or more books.

Module Content and Assessment

In this module the student will study particular themes which are required as background for their MEng research. The study leader will define the various study themes based on the type of MEng research targeted. Typically 3 to 6 study themes will be defined and for each study theme there will be an assignment to be completed. These assignments will have a standard format and will entail the submission of an investigative report and associated developed simulation code. Once marked, feedback is provided by the study leader during the regular meetings (typically bi-weekly). The final mark for the module will be based on a weighted average of the assignment marks.
