10.    Course Goals (acquired competencies):  The course aims to familiarize students with basic concepts and mathematical tools for signal processing and systems analysis. After completing the course, the student is able to – acquire a notion of the basic concepts related to processing of signals such as: convolution, frequency spectrum, frequency characteristic, filtering, transfer function. – to analyze models of LTI systems in time and frequency domain – to use and select appropriate tools for solving specific models.

11.    Course Syllabus: Signals. Operations on signals. Properties of signals. Elementary signals. Systems. Interconnections of systems. System properties. Linear time invariant systems. Convolution. Time domain processing. Fourier representations of signals: continuous time periodic signals – the Fourier series; continuous time nonperiodic signals – the Fourier transform. Properties of Fourier representations. Characterization of LTI systems in time and frequency domain (frequency spectrum, frequency characteristic, filtering, Bode plots)  Analysis of LTI Systems with Laplace Transformation and Z Transformation. Discretization and reconstruction of analog signals.

12.    Learning methods:  Blended teaching method: lecturing, tutorials supported by presentations and visualization of concepts,  active participation of students through tests and assignments, all supported by learning management system

20.    Forms of assessment During the semester, two partial exams are provided (at the middle and at the end of the semester, each with duration of 120 minutes), tests that are conducted during classes and homeworks. The requirement for passing the course through partial exams is minimum 50% of the total number of points from all activities and additionally minimum 50% of the total number of points from the partial exams.
In the exam sessions, a whole exam is taken (with duration of 120 minutes). The requirement for passing the course through an exam is minimum 50% of the total number of points from all activities (whole exam, tests and homeworks) and additionally minimum 50% of the total number of points from the exam.
The use of books, scripts, or notes of any kind during the exam, as well as a mobile phone, tablet or any other electronic device is not allowed.
