COURSE OBJECTIVE 
The primary goals of this course are to provide an understanding of the fundamentals that govern the behavior of signals snd systems and to provide the student with a sophisticated set of tools for analyzing systems. The course will also serve as a prerequisite for other courses, such as Introduction to Communication Systems. This course is designed to introduce the student to the theory and the mathematical techniques used in analyzing and understanding signals and systems. It covers the theory of Fourier series, Fourier transform, their properties, correlation between signals, discrete Fourier transform (DFT), etc.
The idea is to provide a foundation to numerous other courses that deal with signal and system concepts directly or indirectly, like communication, control, instrumentation, and so on. The concepts in this course are also useful to students of disciplines other than electrical engineering such as mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and aerospace engineering.

Learning outcomes 
 Describe the most important properties of communication systems
 Understand mathematical descriptions and representations of continuous and discreet signals and systems.
 Apply same useful operations to the signals, such as shifting, scaling and inversion. This means that student will be able to manipulate with the signal to obtain a desired form
 Understand the process of time and frequency convolution of two functions and how convolution affects the bandwidth of the product of two signals
 Familiarize with the idea of representing continuous time signals and LTI systems in the frequency domain
