About the Course

This course will cover fundamentals of digital communications and networking. The students will study the basics of information theory, sampling and quantization, coding, modulation, signal detection and system performance in the presence of noise. The study of data networking will include multiple access, reliable packet transmission, routing and protocols of the internet.

Salient Features

  • The focus of the M.Tech Degree programme in Communication Systems is on a thorough and in-depth study of Communication theory from a signal processing perspective
  • The subjects studied include : Advanced Digital Signal Processing, Coherent Optical Communication, High speed Communication Networks and Error-Control Coding.
  • A broad theoretical base is also provided through subjects like Linear Operators and Integral Equations, Probability and Stochastic processes and Signal Detection and Estimation.
  • The students also undergo laboratory programmes on the design and implementation of communication subsystems based on DSP modules and fibre-optic devices and components besides devoting their final semester entirely to the project work.
