Learning Outcomes
The study of systems that serve to transfer information over long distances for communication. The theory of communication systems involves the study of information processing techniques (coding, decoding), the effect of noise and the characteristics of transportation, and their applications in the design of telecommunication devices.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
