|Successfully completing three selected modules of the course. The requirements for each module include a small exam and mandatory exercises and/or small project. Grading is based on the exam and quaility of the exercise and project returns.|
The goal is to strengthen the communication theoretic basis for advanced wireless system development. After completing the course, a student has gained in-depth expertise in selected timely topics in the field of wireless communication waveforms, signal processing functions, and coding methods.

Instructions for students on how to achieve the learning outcomes
The list of modules/contents is tentative and selected modules will be implemented, depending on students' interests. In addition to attending the learning sessions and reading the lecture notes/text book, working independently on the homeworks and Matlab problems is a good way for profoundly adopting the core contents.
