Tecnologie per le Telecomunicazioni
Telecommunications Technologies Ennio Gambi
Basic concepts on mathematical analysis
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Through the study of the signal theory and of the most important telecommunication elements, the course enables students to acquire knowledge needed to understand the issues related to transmission of information, to the definition of the trasmission technology and to know how to apply design procedures of communication systems. The course, by integrating the knowledge gained in previous courses like mathematical analysis and electromagnetic fields, provides the student with a technical background on telecommunication.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The student must be able to identify the time/frequency relationship for signals, the basis of signal modulations and of deterioration causes, and to implement appropriate design choices of engineering practice related to TLC systems. This ability will be developed in practice through a number of vocational skills, such as the ability of system dimensioning, to correctly choose the right transmission medium, and the associated system architecture and to identify the causes of performance degradation, and the suitable countermeasures.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
Training activities on time/frequency relationship and laboratory sessions will help improve the students ability to learn independently and to draw conclusions. Both the students ability to communicate and his/her independence of judgment in general, will be stimulated and refined, through oral discussions.

LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
The exam consists of an oral test, during which the student is asked to present the main concepts and technological solutions related to the Technologies for TLC.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
The student, during the oral test, will demonstrate the knowledge and methodological and technological expertise about the Technologies for TLC. To successfully pass the oral exam, the student must demonstrate an overall understanding of the teaching content, with a sufficiently corrected use of technical terminology. The highest rating will be achieved by demonstrating a thorough understanding of teaching content, exposed with complete mastery of technical language.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
During the examination the student's independent ability to set and solve problems that are placed will be evaluated. It shall also assess the ability to use properly the relevant methodologies and models of the Technologies for TLC.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The highest rating is awarded to students who demonstrate during the exam, full autonomy to set and solve problems and complete mastery of the methodologies and models of the Technologies for TLC. The minimum grade is assigned to students who demonstrate during the exam, to be able to solve problems that are placed and sufficient knowledge of the methodologies and models of the Technologies for TLC.
