# ELEC6218 Signal Processing

## Module Overview

This module aims to introduce to the students signal processing techniques, including analogue and digital filter design and systems design theories. The module also introduces the concepts of statistical signal processing including estimation and detection theories, with illustrative case studies to demonstrate how these techniques can be used in communications systems.
