Schedule, syllabus and examination date

Choose semester

Course content

Electrical noise is examined in general, with the emphasis on circuit noise (EMC etc.) and inherent noise (thermal noise etc.). The focus is on noise reduction measures, as well as methods for estimating the extent of the residual noise.

Learning outcome

Participants will be better qualified to predict and identify electrical noise, and to recommend counter measures.

In addition, each PhD candidate will be given an extended curriculum within the field/research area of the course. The syllabus must be approved by the lecturer so that the student can be admitted to the final exam.


PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.

If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.

PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.
