Inclination to learn mathematics, basic knowledge of differential equations and difference equations, electrical circuits and networks.


The course will provide strong foundation on signals and systems which will be useful for creating foundation of communication and signal processing. The students will learn basic continuous time and discrete time signals and systems. Student will understand application of various transforms for analysis of signals and systems both continuous time and discrete time. Students will also explores to power and energy signals and spectrum.

Course Outcome

After learning the course the students should be able to:

  1. Understand about various types of signals, classify them, analyze them, and perform various operations on them.
  2. Understand about various types of systems, classify them, analyze them and understand their response behavior.
  3. Appreciate use of transforms in analysis of signals and system.
  4. Carry simulation on signals and systems for observing effects of applying various properties and operations.
  5. Create strong foundation of communication and signal processing to be studied in the subsequent semester

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
