  • Overview

    To develop a solid and instinctive understanding of the fundamental mathematical generalisations, associated methods and practical mathematical skills central to engineering problem-solving in the field of electronic engineering. To continue the students' development of their skills of analysing problems in a rational and methodical manner and their use of reasoning by analogy. A significant element of the teaching and learning strategy is to motivate the relevance of the mathematical ideas by appropriate applications. The emphasis throughout is on student insight and understanding, not rigorous proof, and on communication of mathematical ideas in terms of diagrams, words, formulas and numbers, not formulas alone. However, some mathematical proofs are used as tools for developing logical and mathematical reasoning.

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Apply integration techniques to calculation of function transforms.
    2. Compute Fourier Series for various periodic functions.
    3. Use Fourier methods to explore real-world time signals.
    4. Use Fourier Transform to analyse input-output relationships.
    5. Solve differential and difference equations using transform methods

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
