This course presents the principles, theory and techniques fundamental to the analysis and design of continuous time and discrete time signal processing systems. The concepts are illustrated with examples from circuit theory, signal processing, bio-medical engineering, communications, etc. The course has three hardware laboratories using the Telecommunications Instructional Modelling System (TIMS) and one computer laboratory based around MATLAB.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:At the end of the course you'll have a good grounding in signals and systems, you will be able to classify different types of systems, and you will master the frequency domain or Fourier techniques to analyze linear time-invariant systems.
- Understand continuous time and discrete time signals; power and energy
- Understand the notion of a system and their interconnections
- Understand the notion of mechanical, thermal and electrical analogies
- Understand the fundamental notions of causality, linearity, time invariance and stability
- Understand convolution and the notion of an impulse response
- Understand Fourier Series and eigen-functions of linear time-invariant systems
- Understand Fourier Analysis and Synthesis; continuous time Fourier transform and discrete time Fourier transform
- Understand the notion of a frequency response
- Understand low-pass, band-pass, high-pass filters and sinc functions
- Understand sampling, the Sampling Theorem, aliasing and the Nyquist rate
- Understand continuous time processing via sampling and digital processing

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
24 one-hour lectures, 4 three-hour labs and 6 one-hour tutorials

Tuition fees are for the academic year indicated at the top of the page.
If you are a domestic graduate coursework or international student you will be required to pay tuition fees. Students continuing in their current program of study will have their tuition fees indexed annually from the year in which you commenced your program. Further information for domestic and international students about tuition and other fees can be found at Fees.
