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: 1. Use mathematics to analyse deterministic and random signals and to analyse processing systems 2. Classify signals and extract information. 3. Critique practical issues behind signal processing and information retrieval 4. Design signal processing systems 5. Use computer packages to model signals, filters and processes 6. Use test and measurement equipment in the laboratory to evaluate signals
