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:1. Demonstrate an understanding of continuous-time and discrete-time signals and other underpinning concepts such as causality, linearity, time invariance and stability.
2. Understand the notion of mechanical, thermal and electrical analogies and the
application of common engineering tools and techniques to problem solving across these disciplinary.
3. In-depth understanding of and use of convolution, impulse response, frequency response and the characteristics
of low-pass, band-pass and high-pass filters.
4. Demonstrate an understanding of engineering design practice and the broad principles of analysis and synthesis.
5. Demonstrate effective reporting of laboratory work.
6. Demonstrate in-depth understanding of sampling, the Sampling Theorem, aliasing and the Nyquist.
7. Demonstrate understanding continuous time processing design 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
