Robust and High Performance Communications


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


The students must have insights into

  • major performance measures in communication systems
  • major factors that influence the performance of a communication system
  • techniques for increasing the resilience towards errors in the considered type of communication system


The students must be able to

  • conduct synthesis of theories, methods and techniques used for at least one of the following:
    • robust communication
    • distribution, storage and processing of data in a distributed system
    • secure communication
    • Capacity, energy optimizations etc   
  • apply relevant theories, methods and techniques to the chosen system to ensure that at least one of the following requirements are satisfied:
  • performance, robustness, reliability or security requirements
  • timing requirements and/ or reliability requirements in connection with distribution, storage or processing of data
  • Implement or simulate multi-link processing effects on challenging wireless communication settings


The students must be able to

  • undertake the construction of a well-functioning robust communication system yielding high performance and efficiency.
  • Communicate the project work in sound scientific and academic form
  • Contribute successfully to team work within the problem area and make a common presentation of the project work
