E E 471C E E 471C. Wireless Communications Laboratory. 4 Hours.
The fundamentals of wireless communication from a digital signal processing perspective; linear modulation, demodulation, and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing; synchronization, channel estimation, and equalization; communication in fading channels; and wireless standards. Three lecture hours and three laboratory hours a week for one semester. Electrical Engineering 371C and 379K (Topic: Wireless Communications Laboratory) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Electrical Engineering 445S (or 345S), 351M, or 360K with a grade of at least C-; and credit with a grade of at least C- or registration for Aerospace Engineering 333T, Biomedical Engineering 333T, Chemical Engineering 333T, Civil Engineering 333T, Electrical Engineering 333T, Mechanical Engineering 333T, or Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering 333T.
Students seeking the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering pursue one of two curricula—electrical engineering or computer engineering. Both curricula contain the fundamentals of electrical engineering and computer engineering; they differ in technical core requirements in order to suit different career objectives.
