Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.


The student should learn the basic principles of signal and system analysis, know the most common signal transforms and understand the frequency domain representation of the signal and learn to use for signal analysis. After the course the student should master filtering of deterministic and stochastic signals with linear lowpass and bandpass filters and know the principles of analog to digital transform and the utilized mapping parameters.
