Digital signal processing is essential in many telecommunications, instrumentation, measurement, control and power applications. As such, a working knowledge of digital sampling and discrete-time processing provides an essential basis for understanding existing engineering systems, and facilitates the design of new systems for emerging applications.
Signal processing is the treatment of signals to enable detection, classification, transmission or enhancement. Such signals may, for example, be the apparent noise generated by a mechanical process, music, speech or other audio, or a video image. This course aims to give the student a thorough grounding in the theoretical and practical aspects of digital signal processing. Practical applications of signal processing are emphasised via directed experimentation and assignment work.
