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:On successful completion of this course, students should have the skills and knowledge to:
- Demonstrate understanding of continuoustime and discrete-time signals and systems and analyse their properties such as causality, linearity, time invariance and stability.
- Describe and model signals and systems arising from different engineering disciplines using a common analytical framework and apply common engineering tools and techniques to problem solving across these disciplines.
- Use impulse response, frequency response and Fourier methods in analysing signals and systems in time and frequency domains, as well as low-pass, band-pass and high-pass filter designs.
- Explain the concept of sampling, the Sampling Theorem, aliasing and the Nyquist rate.
- Apply engineering design practice in a laboratory setting, individually or in a small team, and communicate the results effectively.

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.
