EGR324 Linear Systems and Signals

Lead Faculty: Dr. Jodi Reeves

Course Description

Introduction to fundamental concepts, analysis and applications of continuous-time and discrete-time signals and linear systems. Course contents include time-domain and frequency-domain characterization of signals and systems, Fourier Series and Fourier Transform, basic sampling and filtering concepts, the Laplace Transform, and the Z Transform etc. The course will be supplemented with MATLAB based exercises.

Learning Outcomes

  • Classify and analyze different types of continuous-time and discrete-time signals.
  • Understand the time domain and frequency domain representation of LTI systems and basic system properties.
  • Apply various transforms, such as Fourier series, Fourier transform, Laplace transform etc., to analyze signals and LTI systems.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of fundamentals of signal filtering and sampling process.
  • Use MATLAB to simulate and analyze signals and systems.
