OBJECTIVE
This course is intended to provide the theoretical foundations and practical implementation of signals, systems
and transforms. The course is aimed to provide understanding of fundamental characteristics of signals and
systems and to enable students to develop mathematical skills to solve problems involving convolution,
sampling and transforms. This course serves as the foundation for later higher level courses such as feedback
and control systems, digital signal processing, digital communications and computer networks.

Motivation The intended aim of the instructor is to induce system design and analysis skills in the students
taking this course. The transformations (Laplace, Fourier and z-transform) shall be used as an aid to signals
and system analysis and shall not be allowed to overwhelm the thinking process. The ideas of developing
simple but realistic mathematical models for Engineering systems shall be enforced. The students would be
encouraged to develop expertise in Matlab and use it as an aid to comprehend and visualize different signals
and observe system behaviour using these signals as input.
