RELEVANT PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOME:

The course is designed so that students will achieve the PLO/s:

  1. Design/Development of Solution: Design solution for complex Networks problems and design Networks/Systems, components or processes that meets specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural societal and environmental considerations.
  2. Investigation: Conduct investigation into complex problems using research based methods including design experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.

 

Course Objectives:

The course is designed so that students will understand and comprehend the web of interlocking concepts. The concepts can be structured roughly into three levels:

  • (level1) channel characteristics and  modeling;
  • (level 2) communication  concepts and techniques;
  • (level3) application of these concepts in a system context.

A wireless communication engineer should have an understanding of the concepts at all three levels as well as the tight interplay between the levels. We emphasize in this interplay in this course by interlacing the topics across these levels rather than presenting the topics sequentially from one level to the next.

 

Course Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:

 

  1. Identify the basic properties of multipath wireless channels and their modeling. Characterize the concept of point-to-point communication from a more fundamental capacity point of view, culminating in the modern concept of opportunistic communication.

 

  1. Understand the point-to-point communication techniques that increase reliability by exploiting time, frequency and spatial diversity. Understand MIMO channel modeling. Describe MIMO capacity and architectures. Distinguish between diversity–multiplexing tradeoff and space-time code design.

 

  1. Analyze cellular system design via a case study of three systems, focusing on multiple access and interference management issues.

 

  1. Apply the framework of multiuser capacity and opportunistic communication, and its application in a third-generation wireless data system. Apply MIMO in multiuser channels and cellular systems

 

 

PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS

 

The students will be able to apply their learning to modern wireless communication industry and academia for research. They would be able to define new standards for future mobile networks such as 5G networks. Practical applications of the course can lead the students to wireless industry such as telecom companies.
