The concepts of signals and systems are powerful tools for any engineer dealing with information bearing, measurable physical quantitites. Areas of applications on the Signals and Systems (SAPS) programme from Ulm University, School of Advanced Professional Studies, include, among others, communications engineering, signal processing, control engineering, and systems engineering.


Learning aims of the Signals and Systems (SAPS) programme from Ulm University, School of Advanced Professional Studies

  • The students will be able to classify, interpret, and compare signals and systems with respect to their characteristic properties. They can explain and apply analytical and numerical methods to analyze and synthesize signals and systems in time and frequency domain. Suitable signal transformations can be chosen and calculated with the help of transformation tables.
  • The students are able to recognize stochastic signals and analyze them based on their characteristic properties. They can calculate and interpret the influence of linear time-invariant systems on stochastic signals.

Learning setting

The online part of the study programme takes place in self studies and in form of group work. For the self study part video lectures with detailed information about the contents and an elaborated script is offered. The script is developed especially for extra-occupational learners in regard to the didactic concept of Ulm University. It contains learning stopps, multiple and single choice tests, quizzes, exercises, etc. Lecture notes and further materials and forums are available in a modern web-based e-learning environment.
