Advanced Wireless Engineering - ELEC686

This unit integrates prior learning in a specialist area of engineering with problem solving, emerging technology and aspects of wireless engineering application, technical reporting and self-management to prepare students to work at a professional capacity. The unit aims to address the application of fundamental electronics and communications systems principles and methods at an advanced level in the context of standards and practices, modelling, analysis, design and practical implementation. The unit also develops skills in the critical evaluation of information, software and sources of error and experimental methods. Learning will be achieved using case studies, laboratories, presentations, group work and traditional lecture format. The specific topics will focus on current advances in the area such as resource allocation, performance analysis, scheduling, network design, mobility, handover, medium-access protocols, and energy efficiency in cellular, mesh, ad hoc and other kinds of wireless networks.
