ELEC330 - Signals and Systems

This course introduces students to signals and systems and to linear algebra. Topics include: matrix operations, determinants, vector spaces, linear transformations, orthogonality, eigenvalues, signal operations, classifications of signals and systems, continuous-time LTI system analysis (impulse response, convolution, Laplace transform and its applications), continuous-time signal analysis (Fourier series, Fourier transform and its applications). Prerequisite: MATH515, Multivariable Calculus. 

Course Objectives

  1. At the conclusion of this course, the students will understand the basic concepts in linear algebra and its applications.

  2. The students will have the ability to analyze the performance of a system using tools such as Fourier and Laplace transforms.

  3. Students will use software packages such as Matlab.

  4. These objectives will be met by satisfactorily completing all homework assignment, exams, and lab assignments, as well as classroom and lab participation.

Student Outcomes

(a) Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.

(k) Ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
