ELEC 301 - Signals, Systems, and Learning - Fall 2016


This course deals with signals, systems, and transforms, from their theoretical mathematical foundations to practical implementation in circuits and computer algorithms to learning algorithms that convert signals into inferences.

The first half of the course follows the classical "physics" based approach, while the second half follows the more modern "machine learning" approach. In both halves, linear algebra plays a starring role. Fundamentally important, ELEC 301 acts as a bridge between the introductory ELEC 241/2 and more advanced courses such as ELEC 302, 303, 430, 431, 437, 439, etc. in electrical and computer engineering and the broader area of data science.
