Signals and Systems, Part 1

Indian Institute of Technology Bombay via edX


We encounter signals and systems extensively in our day-to-day lives, from making a phone call, listening to a song, editing photos, manipulating audio files, using speech recognition softwares like Siri and Google now, to taking EEGs, ECGs and X-Ray images. Each of these involves gathering, storing, transmitting and processing information from the physical world. This course will equip you to deal with these tasks efficiently by learning the basic mathematical framework of signals and systems.

This course is divided into two parts. In this part (EE210.1x), we will explore the various properties of signals and systems, characterization of Linear Shift Invariant Systems, convolution and Fourier Transform, while the next part (EE210.2x), will deal with the Sampling theorem, Z-Transform, discrete Fourier transform and Laplace transform. Ideas introduced in this course will be useful in understanding further electrical engineering courses which deal with control systems, communication systems, power systems, digital signal processing, statistical signal analysis and digital message transmission. The concepts taught in this course are also useful to students of other disciplines like mechanical, chemical, aerospace and other branches of engineering and science.

  • This was truly a wonderful course. The professor goes into a lot of depth on the subject. Its not a easy course so be prepared. Make sure you know Calculus. Your in for a real treat especially at the end when Fourier Transform is introduced. I'm not a engineer so the course was doubly hard, but it's fun and rewarding. Thanks.
