EEE 221 Signals and Systems

Code and Name EEE 221 Signals and Systems
Type Core, Engineering, Lecture
Credit Hours 3
Pre-requisites MAT 350

Course Summary: This course provides an introduction to the analysis techniques for different signals and systems. It includes signal representations including Fourier and Laplace transforms. System definitions and properties, such as linearity, causality, time invariance, and stability are covered. This course also includes convolution, delta function, transfer functions and frequency response to determine system characteristics. This course has separate mandatory laboratory session every week as EEE 221L. Lab classes cover the operations with different signals and their distinct representations by using the simulation tool MATLAB. 

 Course Objectives: The objectives of this course are

  1. to introduce different signal operations, distinct systems and their applications.
  2. to use delta function and convolution integrals for engineering problems.
  3. to expose students in the physical world/ real world problems of signals and systems such as applications and differences of Fourier series and Fourier transform.
  4. to analyse complex engineering problems such as the determination of system response, time and frequency domain analysis and the application of the properties of Fourier and Laplace transform.
  5. to introduce MATLAB for simulation platform.
