This course introduces students with embedded system design based on microcontrollers. This includes methodology for design, different design aspects, different features / blocks of microcontrollers and interfacing with peripherals.

This course introduces the field of machine translation that translates text or speech from one language to another. It will familiarize students with different mathematical and statistical models and techniques used in machine translation. Three major paradigms are covered: word-based translation, phrase-based translation, and syntax-based translation.

This course provides an introduction to the fundamental principles of cryptography and its applications on the network security domain. Students will become familiar with cryptographic techniques for secure communication of two parties over an insecure (public) channel; verification of the authenticity of the source of a message; verification of the integrity of the messages transmitted via an insecure channel and unique identification of the originator of any message. Cryptanalysis attacks against the cryptographic techniques, and attack models will be presented. Furthermore, it will be illustrated how network security and management mechanisms employ cryptography to prevent, detect, and mitigate security threats against the network.

The course sets out to provide students a basic understanding of optical transmission systems concentrating on light propagation along fibers and light processing using fiber- and planar waveguide-based devises. Light propagation includes: modal propagation single-mode, multi-mode and special fibers; pulse propagation and dispersions; birefringence and bend loss. Light sources and detector, light processing devices include: couplers and splitters; optical amplifiers.  This course also covers fiber nonlinearities: Kerr effects- SPM, XPM, and FWM; scattering effects - SRS and SBS; transmission link analysis: point-to-point and point-to-multi point links, system configuration, link power budget, line-coding schemes. Optical multiplexing schemes: WDM, OFDM, OTDM and OCDMA; Optical networks. 

This course introduces students on the recent developments in computer networks. The topics to be covered include current issues of research and development such as routing, congestion control, multicasting and resource reservation in the Internet, wireless networks, including wireless ad hoc networks, peer-to-peer networks (P2P), performance study of computer networks, network security. The emphasis will be on in-depth critical analysis of current research problems and proposed solutions. An attempt will be made to provide a broad overview of the entire area of computer networking.
