• We shall learn about the fundamentals of a Digital Communication System (DCS). This course will lay the foundations for the third year course "Digital Communications II, Digital Communications III and Wireless Communications". These courses will give you the necessary knowledge to embark upon a career in Telecommunications.

    • A Master of Philosophy Degree (M.Phil.) under my supervision for a period of two years. On my home page, you will see the publications that were produced by my postgraduate students during their Master's degree. Each paper was presented by the postgraduate student overseas, all expenses paid by UWI. Requirements: Class 1.0 or 2.1 degree.
  • In this course we will cover the fundamentals of digital signal processing based on the "Fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing", by Joyce Van de Vegte, Prentice Hall, ISBN 0-13-01607706. We shall look at digital signals and their spectral components, and design filters based on their spectra. This course will serve as a good starting point for further study in the field of DSP. Finally, my lecture notes will cover the equivalent of 24 lectures within a total of 20. The advantage is that we will finish early. This will give you time to reflect on the lecture material and revise.

  • A further look at selected topics in Digital Communications. We will consider error control coding for a digital communication system.


  • A further look at selected topics in Digital Communications. We will consider the spectral components of signal before taking a look at important practical modulation schemes (e.g. OFDM used in ADSL), Satellite and Wireless Communication systems.
