Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The module aims to introduce signal processing to 3rd year students. It aims to develop the student’s ability to:- Select and apply appropriate mathematical methods for modelling and analysing signals; Understand the scientific principles underlying the generation of signals; Use practical skills in a laboratory session in which the relevant test and measurement equipment is available; Select and apply appropriate computer based methods for modelling signals and communication systems; Design simple signal processing systems.

Principal learning outcomes

"By the end of the module the student should be able to: Use mathematics to analyse deterministic and random signals, and to analyse processing systems; Understand the classification and generation of signals. Understand the methods for extracting information; Understand the practical issues behind signal processing and information retrieval; Design signal processing systems; Use computer packages to model signals, filters and processes; Use practical skills: Use test and measurement equipment in the laboratory to evaluate signals. "

Timetabled teaching activities

Spring. This module includes 20 hours of lectures, 3 hours of examples classes, 5 hours of seminars and 6 hours of laboratory sessions. Required self-study: 116 hours
