Course image Basic Communications Systems 2022
Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This course gives students an introduction to the basic building blocks of modern communications systems. The student is taught the basics of analog and digital modulation techniques and the principles underlying the transmission of information signals from the transmission end to the receiver through a communication channel.

Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students should be able to:
- explain the basic building blocks of a digital communication system;
- understand the principles of operation and application of a representative range of communications and broadcasting systems;
- demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of communication principles, including analogue and digital signals, the radio spectrum, modulation techniques;
- apply a systems approach to the analysis and design of communication systems;
- show confidence with the use of measurement equipment such as signal generators and oscilloscopes;

Course image Introduction to Computer Applications
Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This course is intended to introduce postgraduate students to the basic concepts of computers and computer science.

Emphasis is on understanding how computers really work, starting with a single switch, and showing step by step how to use just that one kind of part to build the most interesting human made machine.

It also addresses some essential limitations of the computer as well as future prospects for artificial intelligence and on line access to the world’s knowledge.

Course image Communication Skills II (EL158)
Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The Communication Skills II aims at furnishing students with how to use the English Language efficiently as a communicators. It builds on what was started in semester I and will focus on how to construct excellent paragraphs, craftily woven together into good essays using appropriate transitional markers, and registers. Documentation will also be explored to toughen students up as young academics so to function efficiently in their field of research.

Course image Programming in LabVIEW
Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This course presents the essential first steps in NI LabVIEW learning path.  It provides students the chance to explore the LabVIEW environment, dataflow programming, and common LabVIEW development techniques in a hands-on format. In this course you will learn to develop data acquisition, instrument control, data-logging, and measurement analysis applications. At the end of the course, you will be able to create applications using the state machine design pattern to acquire, process, display, and store real-world data.
