Course Outline
This course will cover various concepts in modern 3G and 4G wireless communication
systems such as Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO), Code Division for Multiple Access
(CDMA) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), beginning from the
basics. The course is intended as an introductory course for Students in the areas of
Communications and Signal Processing. The treatment would look at current and upcoming
wireless communication technologies for broadband wireless access.
