Course Information

This course will be taught over Zoom, in a “Flipped-Classroom” style, with approximately 120 minutes of recorded lecture material each week. (Some optional lecture material is included.) Two 80-min sessions will be used for questions, examples and working homework problems.

Course information will be distributed as follows (see links at left):

  • Schedule (Lectures, Assignments) - Google Calendar

  • Lecture Videos - available on YouTube

  • Code - availabel at GitHub

  • Class Recordings - available via Box (participants only)

  • Notes and Documents - available via Box

A basic course in MRI, such as EE369B, is a required prerequisite for this class. Please talk to us about exceptions, to help you prepare.


  • Class Quizzes and Participation (5%)

  • Weekly homework (80%)

  • Project Proposal (5%)

  • Final and/or Project (10%)


We will NOT follow a particular textbook. If you work on MRI, these are well worth owning. Otherwise, try to borrow one!
