Signal Processing

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.

We are surrounded by signal processing in our everyday lives. We find signal processing in areas such as telecommunication, transfer and storage of digital data (e.g. Jpeg, mpeg, mp3) as well as in interpretation and analysis of various data, such as medical data or seismic data etc. This course will deal with fundamental methods and techniques for digital signal processing.

Learning outcome

The student shall understand how signals can be studied in time or frequency domains, and that transforms can be applied to transform a signal form one domain to another. The student shall understand the purposes of digital filtering, and how this can be accomplished. Some knowledge of the design of digital filters is also expected. The student shall be familiar with fundamental concepts of stochastic signal analysis.
The student shall be capable of using mathematical and statistical analysis in the study and design of signal processing systems and have the ability to expoit the programming environment Matlab in the simulation of such systems.
General competence:
At the end of this course the student shall have an understanding for the fundamental signal processing concepts from a broad perspective and a perception of its possible application areas.
