FORMER TEACHING & CLASS MATERIALS WHILE AT UNIVERSITY OF TSUKUBA 2011-2016


INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE FOR ENGINEERS
Graduate course at University of Tsukuba

  • Course website: http://tomek.bci-lab.info/teaching/cn 
  • The lecture course introduces neurotechnology applications connecting directly our brains with machines. Computational neuroscience is an approach to understanding the development and function of our brains. The lecture course covers the computational neuroscience basics and the brain-computer interface (BCI) solutions will serve as examples of neurotechnology applications. Basic level of the computational engineering mathematics and an understanding of the technical English will be necessary to follow the content of the course.
  • The course is offered with The Computer Science English Program to foster a development of qualified researchers in the interdisciplinary computer sciences.

An undergraduate course taught by myself and Prof. Claus ARANHA at University of Tsukuba
  • The course provides an introduction to elementary concepts of mathematics for computer science. 
  • Topics include: formal logic notation, induction, sets and relations, permutations and combinations, counting principles, discrete probability.

GLOBAL SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

  • October'13 - January'14
  • Videoconferencing multipoint interactive lecture course in cooperation with: 
  • Hosted and designed by Prof. Victor V. Kryssanov from Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan
  • Class'13/14 focus: Brain Computer Interfacing & Robotics co-advised by Prof. Tomasz M. Rutkowski, University of Tsukuba, Japan.
  • This class is to acquaint students with global-social, managerial, and technical issues that have become increasingly important in modern ICT industry. Students would learn to interact with global collaborators – students and specialists from domestic and overseas organizations – while participating in distributed, international software-development projects. The combination of technical knowledge and socio-cultural competence taught explicitly and implicitly in the class would provide future generations of software professionals with the skills necessary to build innovative software in a global environment, and to successfully manage global software projects.
Conferencing hardware (PROJETPHONE PJP-25UR & MONITOR SPEAKERS MSP3 by YAMAHA) used by Prof. TM Rutkowski at University of Tsukuba was provided by YAMAHA Sound & IT Development Division in Hamamatsu, Japan.
