COMMUNICATION SYSTEM FUNDAMENTALS introduces the students to the concepts of communication system. This course covers the principles of communications, analog and digital modulation techniques, multiplexing and transmission medium. It also exposes the students to the basic of data communication system.

Fiber-optic communication is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of light through an optical fiber. The light forms an electromagnetic carrier wave that is modulated to carry information. First developed in the 1970s, fiber-optics have revolutionized the telecommunications industry and have played a major role in the advent of the Information Age.

Microwave transmission is the transmission of information or energy by electromagnetic waves whose wavelengths are measured in small numbers of centimetre; these are called microwaves
