About this course
This is a postgraduate M.Sc course, and it is designed to provided students with detailed and technical knowledge about coding theory and advanced error control techniques.
1. Error control codes are being used in almost all computer engineering related topics. It can be used in, but not limited to:
a. Data networks. In TCP/IP stack, different error control techniques are performed at multiple levels.
b. Data Storage. Error detection and correction codes are often used to improve the reliability of data storage media.
c. RAMs and Microprocessors. Many current microprocessors including almost all AMD and Intel, support error control codes to increase reliability and data integrity.
d. Digital communications.
2. Error control coding is a field in which elegant theory was motivated by practical problems so that it often leads to important and useful advances.
3. This course is listed in the Master of Science (M.Sc) program of Computer Engineering of Boston University, which is one of the top universities in the world. https://www.bu.edu/academics/eng/programs/computer-engineering/ms/
