CET715 Discrete Time System Modelling and Analysis

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



Practically all control systems that are implemented today are based on computer control. It is therefore important to understand computer-controlled  systems well. The purpose of the subject is to provide a thorough  fundamentals required for understanding, analyzing and designing of  computer-controlled systems.

This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Computer Control and Automation
- FlexiMasters in Computer Control and Automation
