This course is designed for beginners as a comprehensive introduction to broad range of the Information and Communications Engineering especially to its fundamental regions, i.e., Communication systems, Signal Processing / Circuits and systems, VLSI technology. A series of 15 omnibus lectures is presented in understandable ways on the essential concepts or the state-of-the-art technologies in the regions.
By the end of this course, the students will be able to:
1) grasp basic ideas in the fundamental regions of Information and Communications Engineering.
2) understand relations among many ideas that will be specialized in the advanced courses in the department.
3) draw a road map to the areas of future specialization.
Information Theory, Coding Theory, Communication Systems, Network, Signal Processing, Circuits and Systems, VLSI
