Specific course objectives
The course aims to provide students with the ability to handle software tools commonly used in the design and testing of telecommunication equipment. The purpose of this course is therefore to acquire the knowledge necessary to carry out simple projects using simulation software, choosing the appropriate methodology and estimate uncertainties with respect to the final project.
