Advanced Digital Communications
|Course code ELEC4570||Units 10||Level 4000||Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science|
The course introduces topics and concepts in the areas of communications, coding and information theory. The course will introduce topics on information and coding theory applied to telecommunication systems. The course will then discuss coding techniques. The course will cover important techniques such as OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) and spread spectrum used in broadband communication systems. It will also discuss some advanced topics on wireless communication.
