Graduate education in communications at M.I.T. is most directly addressed by three courses: Digital Communications (6.451), Data Networks (6.263), and Information Theory (6.441). There is great and widespread interest in communications within the department, and there is a need for a formal venue in which to explore current and more advanced topics. To address this need, we propose a special subjects course: 6.96x Graduate Seminar in Communications.

Our objectives for the course are to:

To meet these objectives, we propose that the structure of the course be:
Sponsored by a member of the faculty,
Enrollment limited to 13 graduate students (1 per week),
Prerequisites: 6.451, 6.263, 6.441, permission of instructor,
Units: 3-0-9, P/F,
Schedule: Once per week for 2 hours,
Requirements: Attendance, single presentation and writeup.
This proposal is the result of numerous discussions among graduate students from several research groups performing work in communications, as well as interactions with several faculty members.
