Advanced digital encoding, compression and encryption are vital to modern telecommunications and networks. Engineers operating at the advanced level of telecommunications networks are required to understand, maintain and configure advanced telecommunications systems. Furthermore, they may be required to design new systems involving data compression and encryption.
This course examines the methods used for coding, transmitting and storing continuous signals such as speech, music, images and video. The course covers such topics as data compression, encryption, and error control in a digital transmission system.
The course also seeks to impart an understanding of current research problems in the digital communications field. It is thus suitable for students who may wish to undertake research and development work in this important field.
