CET706 Wireless Channel Models

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



How well a wireless radio system performs depends to a large extent on the type of wireless channel it operates in. This course will introduce a variety of  channel models for wireless radio systems. It will also equip learners  with the knowledge of how different types of wireless channels can be  modelled and analyzed mathematically.

This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Information and Telecommunication Engineering
- FlexiMasters  in Information and Telecommunication Engineering

On completion of the course, the learners should be able to:

1. Analyze the propagation path loss encounter by wireless systems;
2. Analyze channel capacity of wireless systems in fading environments and;
3. Apply how conventional channel model can be extended to wireless systems employing MIMO techniques.

(i) Study and analysis of propagation path loss

(ii) Shadowing, and multipath channel models

(iii) Channel capacity and bit error rate in AWGN and fading channels

(iv) Extension of channel models to MIMO systems

For aspiring engineers and Information technologists who wish to improve their knowledge and skills in the broad area of communication engineering.
