EEEN3004J Digital Signal Processing

Academic Year 2021/2022

Restriction: Beijing-based students only.

This module covers the theoretical basis of discrete-time signal processing (digital signal processing), and gives practical applications of DSP such as signal filtering, signal interpretation, and signal analysis. DSP is widely used in digital communications, digital media, and computational science and this course provides the framework for applications in electronic engineering, computer science, physics, geology and applied mathematics. Specific topics covered include digital filtering, discrete Fourier transforms, z-transforms, linear time invariant systems, and spectral analysis. Applications in speech and audio processing, digital communications, biomedical signal analysis and image processing are introduced. A number of computer based assignments are given.
