Digital Communication Systems (18 Credits)
Digital Communication Systems provides a comprehensive study of computer and telecommunications systems with opportunities for applied research. The need for faster and more efficient transmission, reception, storage, and retrieval of information in our high-change society has caused digital communications to be one of the fastest growing fields in technology. The most significant technologies impacting on our information society are the computer, electronic data networks, and computer mediated communication systems. Knowledge about the design and implementation of these systems to communicate in a cost-effective manner is the purpose of advanced studies in Digital Communications Systems.
THE PROGRAM GOALS ARE:
- To analyze issues and problems in communication systems with recommended solutions.
- To design communication systems with application to current developments in the industry.
- To know the policy regulations in the communication industry.
- To manage human and technical resources through a process of strategic planning to develop effective and efficient communication systems.
PRE-REQUISITES FOR SELECTING DIGITAL COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS SPECIALIZATION:
- Computer programming experience.
- Basic analog and digital electronics background.
- Operating Systems experience at the Application Performance level.
