The main objective of the course is the presentation of the most important aspects of research. The student needs to be aware of the related difficulties, issues, as well as the possibilities to overcome them. During the class, the students should learn how to identify a research-oriented problem, how to investigate the current state of the art in the area, as well as how to present original approaches for its solution.
Lecturers: Dr. Natalia Kushik; Invited researchers from and external to Télécom SudParis

Thinking of a traineeship / PhD at Télécom SudParis? Research directions and possibilities.
This course is supported by the execution of Applied / Fundamental projects proposed by the researchers from Télécom SudParis, including (Assistant) Professors, PhD students, research engineers, etc.
The class also includes attending research seminars of different kinds, including tutorials, graduate students’ presentations, invited talks, etc. Seminars where the students are going to present their progress on individual / group projects, are also foreseen, as well as the practical work on the paper preparation.
The evaluation is performed based on the quality of the individual / group project implementation, as well as defined control points, namely: i) project progress presentations at the seminar and homework, including preparation of a part of research paper, presentation, state of the art, etc. (25 %), ii) final presentation – project defense (25 %), and iii) supervisor’s grade on the research project (50 %).
