DSP interview questions : Please Contribute questions and answers here

Started by rajesh May 13, 2009
Hi,

     I have been called for an interview for phd in signal processing
from an institute which does research in physics and astronomy. I dont
know what to expect. ( I guess they will thorougly grill me).

I have done masters majoring in DSP and some years of industry
experience. I had done my masters thesis in linear predictive coding
of speech and wavelets.
The work in the industry was mainly implementation side , video and
image compression (H.264,JPEG2000) algorithms on DSPs.

Its been quite a while from the last time i had read a text book.

I request you to contribute some questions in this thread which could
serve as a reference for people in this kind of a situation in
general.

Also request you to contribute some questions on what to expect in a
phd interview other than technical stuff.

I highly suggest reading the book "A PhD is not Enough." A lot of it applies to your situation as well. Expect questions like "What do you hope to accomplish here (besides a PhD)?", "What do you plan to do long term?" Questions like these don't really have right or wrong answers, but mostly reveal whether or not you have given your future much thought. Clay
