This is first trimester core unit out of a total of 24 units in the Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Telecommunications) BEngTech(Tel). This unit addresses the BEngTech(Tel) course learning outcomes and complement other courses in a related field by developing students’ specialised knowledge in digital comunications and applying critical skills in communication equipment such as Emona ET101 telecom trainer (Biskit).

Digital communication is one of the most commonly used modes of communication now a day, where organizations mostly rely on this mode for all their business communications. The main aim of this unit is to presents the principles and techniques fundamental to the analysis and design of digital communication systems.
Students will gain an understanding of digital communications systems. The unit focuses on the basic building blocks of a digital communication system (channel encoder/decoder, digital modulator/demodulator and channel characteristics). The emphasis is on practical experience in communications systems problem solving and experience in reporting laboratory experiments.
This unit will cover the following topics:
At the completion of this unit students will be able to:
MIT is committed to ensure the course is current, practical and relevant so that graduates are “work ready” and equipped for life-long learning. In order to accomplish this, the MIT Graduate Attributes identify the required knowledge, skills and attributes that prepare students for the industry.
The level to which Graduate Attributes covered in this unit is as follows:
|Ability to communicate||Independent and Life-long Learner||Ethics||Analytical and Problem Solving||Cultural and Global Awareness||Teamwork||Knowledge of Field|
|The standard is covered by theory and practice, and addressed by assessed activities in which the students always play an active role, e.g. workshops, lab submissions, assignments, demonstrations, tests, examinations|
|The standard is covered by theory or practice, and addressed by assessed activities in which the students mostly play an active role, e.g. discussions, reading, intepreting documents, tests, examinations|
|The standard is discussed in theory or practice; it is addressed by assessed activities in which the students may play an active role, e.g. lectures and discussions, reading, interpretation, workshops, presentations|
|The standard is presented as a side issue in theory or practice; it is not specifically assessed, but it is addressed by activities such as lectures or tutorials|
|The standard is not considered, there is no theory or practice or activities associated with this standard|
