SPIs are a subset of the abilities a student will be able to demonstrate upon successfully completing the course.
Outcome 1 (Students will demonstrate expertise in a subfield of study chosen from the fields of electrical engineering or computer engineering): 1. Explain the relative merits of various modulation schemes, especially in terms of their power efficiency and bandwidth efficiency. Outcome 2 (Students will demonstrate the ability to identify and formulate advanced problems and apply knowledge of mathematics and science to solve those problems): 1. Demonstrate how to formulate detection strategies that optimally account for the statistics of the noise. Outcome 3 (Students will demonstrate the ability to utilize current knowledge, technology, or techniques within their chosen subfield): 1. Predict the performance (primarily in terms of power efficiency and bandwidth efficiency) of a newly encountered modulation scheme.
