    This unit provides knowledge in a number of advanced topics in wireless communications and related techniques. Students will gain in-depth understanding on topics such as wireless channel characteristics and modelling, channel capacity estimation and digital modulation techniques. Complex topics such as fading, diversity techniques (e.g., time, space, frequency), interference, error control coding and power control will be visited. Other advanced topics covered include multicarrier modulation, spread spectrum, antenna arrays, smart antenna techniques, multiple-input/multiple-output communications systems.

    Learning Outcomes

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

    1. Describe advance principles and technologies relating to information transmission over wireless communication channels and different channel models;

    2. Examine major problems of a wireless communication channel and apply appropriate techniques for mitigating them;

    3. Evaluate the capacity of a wireless channel and derive expressions for error performance for various transmission schemes; and

    4. Formulate advance principles and techniques to design wireless communication systems and/or undertake further research in a related field.
