The objectives of this course are

  • To excite the student on creative design and its significance
  • To make the student aware of the processes involved in design
  • To make the student understand the interesting interaction of various segments of humanities, sciences and engineering in the evolution of a design
  • To get an exposure as to how to engineer a design.

Course Objectives

To impart a basic knowledge in Electrical Engineering with an understanding of fundamental concepts.

Course outcome

The course will enable the students to gain preliminary knowledge in basic concepts of Electrical Engineering.

Fourier methods are definitely a widely applied tool of analysis.  They are used in (probably) ALL areas of signal (i.e. audio, images, radar, sonar, x-ray crystallography, etc.) processing.  They are used in many computational algorithms that require convolutions that have nothing to do with signals.  They are used in numerical solutions of ordinary and partial differential equations which can be used to model almost anything.  The number of applications and fields touched by Fourier methods is so large that I could spend hours writing an list that would still not be exhaustive.
Suffice it to say that the ideas themselves are worth learning just because they are REALLY neat.  But unlike many areas of mathematics, once you learn the ideas behind Fourier series, you can spend a lifetime inventing new applications.

This course introduces basic ideas of differential equations, both ordinary and partial, which are
widely used in the modelling and analysis of a wide range of physical phenomena and has got
applications across all branches of engineering. The course also introduces Fourier series which is
used by engineers to represent and analyse periodic functions in terms of their frequency
components.
