In the University of Aveiro, a new Portuguese University (only twenty years old), the teaching of the Theory of Signals and Systems is done within the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications. This Department has interests on Electrical and Computer Engineering, and is responsible for a degree on Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering, as well as a Master´s degree on the same area.
The faculty of the Department is composed by over sixty professors and lecturers (23 with Ph.D. degrees). Annually, the Department receives around 150 undergraduate students, and over 50 graduate students. The total number of students in the Department is over one thousand.
Recently, we have reformulated the curriculum of the Engineering degree, which is five years long (ten semesters) and has the following structure:
Area Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Mathematics X X Physics X X Electronics X X X project & options Computers X X X X project & options Telecommunications X X project & options Theory of Signals and X X X project & Systems options
Basically, we have two years with the basics (mathematics and physics), and introductory courses on Computer Programming, basic Circuit Analysis, and the fundamentals of Signals and
