Synopsis

This level 2 course is fundamental to the study of many fields that constitute the ever-expanding disciplines of electrical and electronic engineering. This course also serves as the prerequisite for other coursework in the study of filter theory and design, communications, signal processing, and control engineering. On theoretical basis, this course addresses many essential issues in electrical and electronic engineering, including analogue and discrete representation of signals and systems, analysis and design of signals and systems in the time and frequency domains. Frequently used system operations on signals, such as convolution and transformation are also studied. This course is to provide a theoretical foundation and some practical experience for undertaking the analysis and design of electronic systems and the signals to be processed by such systems.

Level: 2
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every semester
E-Learning: BLENDED - Learning is done MAINLY online using interactive study materials in Canvas. Students receive guidance and support from online instructors via discussion forums and emails. This is supplemented with SOME face-to-face sessions. If the course has an exam component, this will be administered on-campus.
