Course Information

Description

Advanced topics of current interest in Communications, which are taken from publications and industrial information.

Why take this course?

This course gives the flexibility of teaching state-of-the-art subject matter in communications, which may not be appropriate as a regular offering. As such it also provides visiting experts the opportunity to teach our students a highly specialized course for credit, not otherwise possible.

Prerequisites
