Course Objectives:

The course introduces students to the fascinating field of modern digital communications
at a graduate/undergraduate level.

The coverage emphasizes a conceptual understanding of principles, techniques, and


fundamental limits and trade-offs in digital communication system

To make students familair with modern digital trasmitter and receiver mechanisms
