Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

The Digital Signal Processing subject will provide students the assimilation of methods and strategies for analyzing discrete signals and designing digital filters. The knowledge imparted will enable students to recognize and use concepts related to signal processing in general and, specifically, to image and audio digital processing.
The course consists of different activities to be carried out as theory, problem solving practice and computer practice classes. In all activities it will be necessary both individual work and group work for successful achievement of the objectives of the course.
The activities related to theory and problem solving practice classes will be taught in the theory lecture room, and computer practice classes will be taught in one of the laboratories of Polytechnic University College.


Before you enroll in the course of Digital Signal Processing you have to study the following subjects:
