Bridging Courses

Although there are no mandatory prerequisites for this exam, students are strongly recommended to take it after Calculus, Discrete Structures and Linear Algebra, Probability and Statistics.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding:

At the end of the course, the student will learn the fundaments of signal analysis; will know how signals can be processed using digital filters; will know the main digital filter structures and how these can be designed and he will acquire the ability to understand the principles and methods at the basis of any digital signal processing system.

Applying knowledge and understanding:

The student will learn the methodologies of digital signal processing (DSP) and will be able to apply them for processing audio signals. In particular, he will be able to analyze signals, to process them using digital filters, to design different kinds of DSP filters, to understand and apply the main signal compression methods. The ability to apply these techniques will be developed and sharpened in the laboratory exercitations, where audio signals will be analyzed.

Making judgements:

The student will be able to apply the methodologies of digital signal processing for understanding and solving novel problems involving signal analysis, signal processing, or signal compression. The critical discussions in class and the exercitations will be used to stimulate and develop the making judgements ability of the student.

Communication skills:

The student will acquire the ability to communicate the fundamental concepts of digital signal processing with an appropriate and rigorous terminology. He will learn to describe the problems related to signal analysis, signal processing, and signal compression and the methodologies adopted for their solution.

Learning skills:

The student will acquire the ability to study and learn novel techniques for signal analysis, signal processing, and signal compression, and he will be able to develop autonomously solutions for novel problems related to digital signal processing.

Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

Frontal lessons and laboratory activities

Attendance

Although recommended, attendance of this course is not mandatory.

Course books

S. Mitra, "Digital signal processing", McGraw-Hill, 2001, 2011.
A. V. Hoppenheim e R. W. Schafer, "Discrete-time signal processing", Prentice Hall, 2010.

Assessment

Written exam and oral exam.

The written exam is evaluated in thirtieths and it is passed if the mark, which holds for the whole academic year, is at least 15/30. The oral exam, which is composed by open answer questions,  can be performed only after passing the written exam and determines a spread of the previous mark, thus yielding the final mark. The evalution of the oral exam consider the acquired knowledge, the comprehension of the subject, and the ability to properly present the topic.
