PROPOSAL FOR NEW COURSE: ADVANCED TOPICS IN WIRELESS
COMMUNICATIONS


JUSTIFICATION


Wireless personal communications has become one of the fastest growing fields in the
engineering world
.

Presently more than 600 million people

(about 10%) of the world’s
population are wireless users, and that number is expected to approach 50% by the year
2010. Hence there is a need for qualified engineers, with an exposure to the latest design
developments Wireless Communications. This course, when offered for the first

time,
will
be an advanced sequel to
the basic Wireless Communication course

(EEE 262)

offered by the department
, and will be prepared by input from faculty, students and
industry personnel.

The proposed course will cover advanced areas not covered in the

basic EEE 262 course, and hence will provide students with a specialized training in
Wireless Communications
