**EE 595: Security in Wireless Communications**

__Course Description__: Literature review on wireless network security algorithms, different cryptographic schemes for group communication and proposed secure wireless communication schemes.

**EE 595: Information Theory**

__Course Description__: This course will serve as the first among the sequence of two courses in the area of Information Theory.

The first part of the first course will introduce the ideal of uncertainty, which is a useful measure in studying the data compression and deriving the results related to compression. Compressing data naturally leads to the need for coding strategies that can represent the data in the most efficient way. This problem is studied in the context of optimal coding and the notion of optimality is introduced. The folk wisdom of twenty questions is brought back in this context and related to the Shannon-Fano-Elias coding. We will also deal with the correlated sources in which case the Slepian-Wolf Lemma provides the main result for compression.

The second part of the first course will deal with the results that relate to the communication channel and the rate of transmission in a given noisy channels. In particular, we shall derive the result dealing with the capacity of the channel followed by the rate distortion theory followed by the network information theory. Gaussian channel will be of special interest to us. Course wraps up with the joint source-channel results.

**EE 595: Wireless Sensor Networks**

__Course Description__: In this graduate level course is intended for students planning to pursue research in the emerging area of information processing in sensor networks. The course covers various topics of interest in sensor networks. The students review the extensive literature to understand the fundamental issues in designing and analyzing sensor networks. In order to gain in depth knowledge in a specific topic of interest, the students investigate the topic in a course project.

**EE 418 - Network Security and Cryptography**

__Course Description__: Fundamental principles of cryptography and its application to network and communication security. An introduction to the fundamental tools in cryptography and the protocols that enable its application to network and communication security.

**EE 341 - Discrete Time Linear Systems**

__Course Description__: Undergraduate course covering discrete time signals and systems, impulse response, convolution. Z-transforms, discrete-time Fourier analysis. Computer laboratory.
