Course Title: Coding Theory and Security Communications
ECTS points: 6 ECTS
Number of classes per week: 3+0+0+3
Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Aleksandar Risteski
Course Goals (acquired competencies): Upon finishing the course it is expected that the student will be capable to perform thorough analysis of codes and coding schemes; application of coding techniques in various technologies and systems; thorough analysis of cryptographic protocols, algorithms and mechanisms and their application in communication systems. It is expected that the student will be capable to perform research work in these areas.
