A workshop on “IEEE Circuits and Systems Society – Adaptive Filter Theory,” has been held in Accra by the Information Technology Department of Sikkim Manipal University Learning Centre in Accra.
The one-day workshop, which was held at the Academic City campus of SMU Ghana, under the auspices of the International Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world’s largest technical society, was to expose students to opportunities in the engineering field.
It also had the aim to equip students with the technical knowledge required by IT professionals in the area of circuit and systems design, and to acquaint participants with research accomplishments, as well as development approaches provided by researchers.
As part of the training session, Professor Tokunbo Ogunfunmi, Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development at the School of Engineering at Santa Clara University, California, USA, engaged participants in discussions on a variety of issues including how adaptive filtering techniques were used in a wide range of applications, including echo cancellation, adaptive equalisation, adaptive noise cancellation, and adaptive beam-forming.
Mr. George Eduful, Chairman of the Ghana chapter of IEEE, introducing the participants to the IEEE, highlighted the benefits of IEEE membership to students in information and technology, and electrical and electronics studies.
