My courses

  • Coding / Spring 2019 - Chanel coding theory


    Coding is a crucial aspect of communications, as it allows for meeting the fundamental limits in a reliable manner. In the center of coding lie a variety of techniques for designing error detecting and correcting codes, which are the corner stone of any communications systems. Coding theory also gives insights as to how to design modern network systems: such techniques include network coding, index coding, memory-aided coding, etc. This short course will seek to expose the student to a  variety of theoretical and practical aspects of modern error correcting codes as well as to other coding theoretic aspects. In addition to theory, the course will also provide practical training in the form of MATLAB sessions, as well as homework assignments. 

    Teaching and Learning Methods : Lectures, exams, MATLAB practical training and different assignments.

    Course Policies :  The Final Exam will be two hours long, and it will be comprehensive.  During the final exam, all notes corresponding to this class are allowed. 

  • MobCom / Fall 2018 - Mobile communication techniques

    The goal of MOBCOM is to provide a fundamental understanding of mobile communication systems. The course will seek to describe the key aspects of channel characteristics/modeling, of communication techniques, and to describe the application of these techniques in wireless communication systems.

    Teaching and Learning Methods : Lectures and Lab sessions (group of 2-3 students)

    Course Policies : Attendance to Lab session is mandatory.
