ASC Study Guide


This document is written to support the students of Advanced Signal Processing and Communications Engineering (ASC) at the FAU in organizing their studies and to provide some insight into this programme to prospective students and the generally interested public. As such, it describes the main characteristics of the programme, its scope, and its goals. As reference information, it includes an English description of the curriculum and the key elements of the applicable examination regulations for ASC students. The latter are based on the English-language programme-specific examination regulation for the Master’s Programme Advanced Signal Processing and Communications Engineering (ASC) and the German-language general examination regulation of the Faculty of Engineering at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). Please note that the German versions of the examination regulations are the legally binding documents. The study guide also includes relevant guidelines for using the services provided by the university and its associated institutions, e.g., the housing service of the Studentenwerk, an overview of need-to-know internet platforms and useful addresses.
The authors welcome feedback and suggestions for additions.
