Signal processing is fundamental to all areas of engineering and underpins communication, medicine, defence, security, the entertainment industry, and nearly every aspect of modern life. These applications require precise implementation of engineering based on fundamental principles. The educational aim is to provide understanding of concepts in signal processing, how the theoretical framework impacts and resolves the details of practical application.
