Welcome to ELEC 3004/7312 -- Digital Linear Systems: Signals & Control!


This course teaches the fundamentals of linear systems theory for continuous and discrete signal analysis and feedback control. 
Additional information can be found on the Courses & Programs listing and in the Course Profile for (ELEC 3004 Semester 1 - 2016)
and (ELEC 7312 Semester 1 - 2016).


An open, online assignment submission system supporting peer assessment that randomizes on a per-question, as compared to a per assignment, basis. (concept sketch
Some tips and principles for good peer feedback are given in "Introduction to Peer Review" (Tutorial Wk. 2).

The class has three problem sets or assignments worth 60% in total (or 20% each).  They will nominally go out about two weeks before they are due and are designed to take about a week to complete.  They are to be submitted via Platypus.

  1. Problem Set 1: An Introduction to Signals and Systems (20%)
  2. Problem Set 2: Sampling and Filters (Digital & Analog)  (20 %)
  3. Problem Set 3: Digital Feedback Control  (20 %)

Final Examination:

The final exam is worth 40% total.  It is managed by the UQ Central Examinations Office. It is scheduled on TBA from TBA am to TBA pm  and will be held in the (TBA).  The exam consists of three sections (Digital Systems, Signal Processing, and Digital Control) with short answers questions and problems.  It comes with an equation sheet (see practice exam).  Students are additionally permitted a doubled-sided A4 equation sheet of their own design.  For format and style, please see: the 2016 final exam, 2015 final exam, the 2014 final exam, the 2013 final exam, or the practice exam.
