Public Lecture on Data-driven Modelling

 

The Department of Systems and Control Engineering is organizing a public talk by
Dr. John Joseph Valletta
University of Exeter, United Kingdom


          • Date: Wednesday 7th January 2015
          • Time:12:00 ~ 13:00
          • Venue: Room EB3, Engineering Building, Msida Campus

 

TITLE and ABSTRACT:
Data-Driven Modelling: Applications in
Type 1 Diabetes, Formula 1 and Malaria

 

What do type 1 diabetes, aerodynamics of a Formula 1 car and malaria have in common?They all encompass a host of complex processes for which we do not have exact mechanistic models to describe their behaviour. We do however, have increasing access to a range of sensing and measuring technologies to collect data from these systems. These data contain some useful signal about the properties of the system under certain conditions. Data-driven approaches enable us to tap into this information to elucidate on the underlying system’s processes, and thus improve our overall understanding. I will discuss the use of such methodologies in three distinct fields and argue how such approaches are key to understanding complex systems.

MSc by Research Post

07 Oct 2014

Full-time MSc by Research Post 

Department of Systems & Control Engineering in collaboration with the
Centre for Biomedical Cybernetics – University of Malta 

1.     Graduate or final year students are invited to express their interest in a full-time MSc by Research with the Department of Systems & Control Engineering in collaboration with the Centre for Biomedical Cybernetics of the University of Malta and MRI.TOOLS GmbH in Berlin. The MSc by Research project will involve the development of an advanced phonocardiogram system for MRI triggering, involving the application of signal processing methods for the analysis of phonocardiogram signals for MRI triggering and hardware and software development for phonocardiogram acquisition and real-time processing.

2.  This MSc will take place over 3 semesters on a full-time basis during the academic year 2014/2015. The candidate undertaking the study will be spending two semesters working on the project locally with the Centre for Biomedical Cybernetics at the University of Malta and one semester at MRI.TOOLS GmbH in Berlin. The candidate will have an exciting opportunity to experience work in a multi-disciplinary team at the Berlin Ultra High Field Facility (BUFF) of the Max Delbrück Centre which houses a 9.2T animal MRI and a 7T human MRI.

3.  Candidates must be in possession of, at least, a Second Class Honours degree in one of the following areas: Electrical & Electronic Engineering, ICT, Physics, Mathematics, and any related areas. The ideal candidate should have a background in signal processing; an interest in biomedical signal processing and have experience with electronic platforms such as Raspberry Pi or others.

4.  Interested individuals should send an email with an expression of interest, a copy of their CV and a degree transcript record to Dr Owen Falzon (owen.falzon@um.edu.mt) by the 18th of August 2014.

24 Jun 2014

TakeOff_WebsiteSize

 

Researchers from the Department of Systems and Control Engineering and the Centre for Biomedical Cybernetics have been performing research in brain-computer interfacing for several years. Their recent work led to a real-time brain-controlled music player which received widespread international interest and recognition. The group, made up of Rosanne Zerafa, Tracey Camilleri, Owen Falzon and Kenneth Camilleri, has now been awarded seed funding from the TAKEOFF Seed Fund to develop a product prototype of this brain-controlled device with the objective of making brain control more accessible. Further information about the group's research may be found here.

Full-time MSc by Research Posts on Biomedical Signal Processing
Department of Systems and Control Engineering, Faculty of Engineering 


  1. Graduate or final year students are invited to express their interest for full-time MSc by Research posts on projects in the area of biomedical signal processing, mainly in the context of electroencephalography (EEG) signals and electromyography (EMG) signals. These studies will have a duration of 3 semesters on a full-time basis and commence in academic year 2014/2015.
  2. Students must be in possession of, at least, a Second Class Honours degree in one of the following areas: Electrical & Electronic Engineering, ICT, Physics, Mathematics, and any related areas. Ideal candidates must have a good background in signal processing; an interest in biomedical signal analysis and processing; an aptitude for mathematics and proficiency in programming including MATLAB and preferably also C++.
  3. These posts are not supported by research funds or stipends, but selected candidates will be guided to apply for the government MASTER It! Scholarship Scheme to possibly obtain funding in support of their studies.
  4. Interested students should send an email of an expression of interest, a copy of their CV and a degree transcript record to Dr Owen Falzon (owen.falzon@um.edu.mt) by the 19th of May 2014.
