Prerequirements (prerequisite courses)
Probability theory and mathematical statistics 
Course goals and learning objectives
The aims of this course are to introduce the principles and applications of digital communication systems. The course will study how information is measured in terms of probability and entropy, and the relationships among conditional and joint entropies; how these are used to calculate the capacity of a communication channel, with and without noise; coding schemes, including error correcting codes; how discrete channels and measures of information generalise to their continuous forms

Assessment criteria
Based on the material of each of the two modules, electronic testing is conducted in an electronic training course on the distance learning server For each of the tests (20 questions) you can get a maximum of 20 points.
Each performed laboratory work is estimated at a maximum of 5 points.
