Signal processing and communications research

The School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University offers instruction in the related areas of signal processing and communications systems (SP/Comm) at the graduate level. Courses are also offered for beginning graduate students in the SP/Comm area to bridge any gaps that might exist between their undergraduate course work and the 500-level offerings at ASU. Students may choose from among several 500-level courses ranging from offerings primarily intended for first-year students to special topics courses designed to acquaint advanced graduate students with research topics of current interest.
