WCM600 Signal Processing Theory

Lead Faculty: Dr. Shekar Viswanathan

Course Description

Students master key Digital Signal Processing concepts and wireless signal filtering using mathematical models of continuous-time and discrete-time signals and linear systems. Analyze and simulate communication systems using MATLAB. Employ concepts of probability, functions of random variables, and Poisson distributions through analysis of wireless signals using the MATLAB programming language.
