Campus MCS
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Advanced Digital Communications System
Course Code EE851
Credit Hours 3+0
Course Objectives This course is designed to prepare students for engineering work in the industry and for advanced graduate work in the area of digital communications. The course covers concepts and useful tools for design and performance analysis of transmitters and receivers in the physical layer of a communication system. MATLAB will be used for some exercises.
