Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to introduce the principles of signal processing, with emphasis on discrete signal processing. It will provide the students with the theoretical basis for understanding digital signal processing fundamentals schemes along with discussions concerning the basis of statistics, probability and stochastic processes.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

1. Appreciate time domain and frequency domain representations and properties of signals and signal processing systems (K1, K2, S1).

2. Appreciate fundamentals of stochastic signals and stochastic signal processing. (K1, K2, S1)

3. Analyse sampling and digital quantification mechanisms in digital signal processing. (K1, K2, S1)

4. Apply transformation methods to the analysis of continuous and discrete signals and the analysis and design of digital filters in the time and frequency domains. (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)

5. Apply software tools to the design and analysis of signal processing systems. (K1, K2, S1, S2)
