SPIs are a subset of the abilities a student will be able to demonstrate upon successfully completing the course.
Outcome 1 (Students will demonstrate expertise in a subfield of study chosen from the fields of electrical engineering or computer engineering): 1. Understand the theory and practice of data compression and modeling as well as its applications in digital media and communication systems in everyday use. Outcome 2 (Students will demonstrate the ability to identify and formulate advanced problems and apply knowledge of mathematics and science to solve those problems): 1. Understand and implement methods and algorithms for data compression and modeling Outcome 3 (Students will demonstrate the ability to utilize current knowledge, technology, or techniques within their chosen subfield): 1. Design algorithms to model a given signal, extract model parameters, and achieve effective data compression on the signal
