Communication theory

Individual course

This course focuses on the most fundamental elements, processing methods and laws and boundaries stemming from the nature that are encountered in all electrical and electromagnetic communication systems (Internet, mobile radio networks, WLANs/WiFi, etc.). These include the concepts of filtering and modulation and phenomena like noise, distortion and interference. Also fundamental information theoretic bounds applicable to all communication systems are covered, and how they are related to concepts like bandwidth, energy and noise power.

Course material

Lecture recordings and other materials are available on the course platform.


The course contains scheduled lectures and/or other learning events, however, the course can also be studied in self-studying manner. The summer implementation will primarily be based on flexible self-studying.
