ECE 432: Wireless Communications
Prerequisite: ECE 320
Introduction to the principles and practice of wireless communications. The course presents the concepts of frequency reuse and cellular structure and covers propagation effects, multipath fading, digital and analog modulation, diversity and equalization, multiple access, and wireless networks. The course also presents modern wireless systems and standards. The focus of the course is to understand wireless communications at a systems level and is designed as a senior elective for departmental majors. Basic understanding of electromagnetic wave propagation and communication theory is expected. The course includes a project related to new technological advances in wireless systems.
