DCS.222 - Advanced Communication Technology
This 10-week module was attended by both 2nd and 3rd-year undergraduate students, who pursued degrees in Computer Science and Communication Systems. The module was restructured and its content was divided into three thematic sections. The first section described the operation of fundamental blocks of a communication system and presented basic models of wireless propagation channels. The second section focused on system-level design concepts of mobile telephone systems and wireless data networks. The third section concentrated on current and upcoming standards, e.g., IEEE 802.11 (WiFi), IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX), GPRS/EDGE and LTE.
DCS.222 was laid down in 2012 but its syllabus formed the basis for SCC.351 - "Advanced Communication Systems", which was introduced in 2013-2014.
I was the convenor and sole lecturer of DCS.222 in 2011-2012. Module statistics shown below include the number of students who enrolled on the module, the number of students who completed the evaluation report, and the average score in the category "module as a whole".
