: :  CSE 426 Advanced Communication Systems

Course Objective:

This course aims at providing the senior-level under-graduate BICSE/BEE students an introduction to the theory and practical know-how about the Advanced Communication Systems such as Cellular Mobile and Satellite Communications-one of the fastest growing field in the engineering world. The basic and under-lying technical concepts, which are essential for the design, implementation, and research in the Radio Communication Systems, will be presented in an easy to understand way while discussing practical examples and solutions to some real-world problems. On successful completion of this course, the students will be able to understand Radio Wave Propagation and Propagation Models, Fading Channel and Types of Fading, Modulation Techniques used in Wireless Communications, Access Techniques for Wireless Communications, Radio Link Models and Link Budget Analysis. They will be able to apply these concepts for Satellite Communication System and Cellular Mobile Communication System Design.

Dr. N.D. Gohar visited Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden from 1st July - 3rd September 2008. This visit was carried out in relation with the project titled "Software Defined Radio (SDR) Development Using Network-on-Chip (NOC) Based Rapid Prototyping Platform (REXAPP)". The project is a joint venture of Group for Research in ASIC and FPGA (GRAF) at NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (SEECS) and KTH, Sweden. The visit was carried out on invitation of Dr. Ahmed Hemani from KTH, Sweden. The main purpose for the visit was to chalk out the detailed specifications for the project and problem statements and course work requirements for the PhD students. The visit also paved way for further collaboration between the two universities and couple of other project proposals have been developed. Another positive outcome of the visit is the agreement between the two universities to start a joint MS program in System-on-Chip from next year. A proposal has also been developed for that for formal approval. Overall, the visit has been very productive and successful.
