6cp; 3.5hpw, on campus.
Requisite(s): 33230 Mathematics 2
Anti-requisite(s): 48541 Signal Theory

Fields of practice: Data Engineering program



This subject provides the theoretical foundations of information theory and signal processing that prepare students for both industry- and research-oriented careers. Later subjects in data engineering, communications systems and image processing rely heavily on the mathematical groundwork and system framework in this subject. A strong laboratory component is emphasised to equip students with hands-on experience and the ability to apply theoretical concepts to a number of practical communication and signal/image processing systems. Students are also encouraged to be involved in a collaborative research project in information and signal theory.
