General Information


In this unit, you will gain hands-on experience in designing, dimensioning and simulating industrial data communication networks. You will be introduced to relevant communication principles and techniques, common signal transmission media, transmission mechanisms and modes and signal processing techniques used in communication systems. You will apply mathematical analysis techniques to study different telecommunications systems and their applications. You will also be introduced to different communication standards and protocols commonly used in industrial communication and automation systems. This unit will also provide you with opportunities to further develop communication skills through collaborative teamwork and individual presentations.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Unit Coordinator's reflection


Review the unit content and identify opportunities for sharing resources with the advanced communications systems unit.


Restructure the unit's content to incorporate wireless and optical communications' content.

Feedback from Unit's survey


The design assignment was challenging and provides a good learning activity, but it is too open and thus it is a bit more guesswork.


The design assessment provides an authentic assessment and an opportunity for applying concepts learned in this unit. It therefore will be retained and structured better to remove unnecessary assumptions made.

Feedback from Unit's survey


Lecture slides feel crowded having a lot of concepts covered at one time.


Improve the lecture slides to have a single concept per slide.
