ECE 201: Introduction to Signals and Systems

Instructor Information

Section Information

Provides an introduction to key concepts for the description and analysis of signals and systems with an emphasis on discrete-time signals and systems. Specific topics include sinusoidal and complex exponential signals, sampling, spectrum representation of signals via DTFT and DFT, system properties, convolution, impulse response and frequency response. The associated computer lab provides opportunities to apply concepts to physical reality. Note: Students must register for both lecture and lab.

Course Information from University Catalog

Limited to 2 Attempts

Provides technically more rigorous introduction to problems and tools commonly encountered by electrical engineers. Introduces mathematical modeling of engineering problems and their solutions. Introduces standard software packages for electrical engineering as tools to simulate engineering problems on computer. Mathematical and computer models are related to physical reality provided by hands-on experiments.
