ECE 203: Signals, Information, and Computing
2012 Fall Semester

ECE 203 is an introduction to the fascinating world of signals, information, and computing.  Learn about the algorithms and mathematical foundations that underpin how signals are acquired, analyzed and processed in applications ranging from MP3 players to brain imaging using MRI.  We will explore signal processing not only with mathematics, but also through hands-on experiments with real-world signals.

Open to all students with a basic mathematics background.
