Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

The unit teaches the theories and practices of digital signal processing, including sampling, digital spectra analysis, digital Fourier transforms, z-transforms, digital filters, with the emphasis on their applications, especially in audio and image signal processing, by using contemporary software and hardware techniques. This unit may be cotaught with 10095 Digital Signal Processing G.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of the unit, students will be able to:

1. Explain the fundamental theories of digital signal processing;

2. Design and implement finite and infinite impulse response filters;

3. Construct low-pass, band-pass, and high-pass filters to solve signal processing problems;

4. Apply the concepts of spectrum analysis to periodic and non-periodic signals;

5. Explain Laplace transform, z-transform and discrete Fourier transform and their application in signal analysis; and

6. Develop digital signal processing systems using contemporary software and hardware techniques.
