This is a new online course aimed at teaching the core principles of digital and wireless communications along with methods of implementing these principles in practice.
The course will be delivered as a series of online live tutorials.
To augment the theoretical aspects of the course, various case studies will be discussed, and you will be able to apply the knowledge gleaned in the tutorials to work through structured software mini-projects based in MATLAB/Octave.
Taking this course will provide you with:
- A comprehensive and rigorous treatment of modern digital and wireless communication techniques, viewed from a balanced perspective that illustrates how theory is applied in practice.
- The knowledge to be able to critically appraise different techniques and to design/simulate fundamental aspects of communication systems.
- A practical take on system modelling via software mini-projects, which will also be used to consolidate knowledge and to explore more advanced methods and theory.
The limited number of places available on this course ensures that everyone is able to take full advantage of the discussions and exercises.
