Foundational Courses

Special Topics Courses

Communication Sciences Institute faculty offer core courses that cover mathematical and physical foundations, fundamental design principles, and practical algorithms that underlie modern communication, computing, and information systems. These courses include probability and random processes; digital communications and coding; wireless, mobile, and optical communication systems; information theory, estimation theory, and inference.

In addition to foundational courses on communications, information theory and random processes, the Communication Sciences Institute faculty regularly teach special topics courses on bleeding edge research areas. Recent offerings include: 5G wireless systems, quantum information theory, quantum algorithms, social networks, coding for distributed storage, sparse approximation and compressed sensing, coding for distributed storage and underwater acoustic communication systems.
