EE313 Linear Systems and Signals
Prof. Brian L. Evans
EE 313 builds a mathematical foundation for analyzing
signals and systems in a wide variety of applications,
including speech, audio, image and video processing
as well as communications and control systems.
Topics include representation of signals and systems,
system properties, sampling, Laplace and z-transforms,
transfer functions, frequency responses, convolution,
stability, Fourier transform, feedback, and control
applications, as well as computer analysis using MATLAB.
EE 313 feeds into several ECE specializations, including
machine learning, energy systems, communication systems,
and signal/image processing systems.
Here's a slide showing the
25+ undergraduate ECE courses
at UT Austin that build on EE 313.

Advice to get the most out of this course:
Items 1, 3, and 4 came from students.
- Remove distractions that prevent you from being efficient in your
work and in your play.
- When choosing courses, check the workload ratings by the two-thirds
of students who had previously taken the course on the
course instructor surveys.
- Write down questions in a journal when they arise and find
opportunities to ask the questions to professors, TAs, tutors,
students, and others.
- Find a mutually beneficial study group of two or three persons
for each course-- more than three can become great for socializing
but unproductive for studying.
- Attend instructor, teaching assistant and tutor office hours.
They can answer your questions and guide you in what material to
focus on when studying.
- Attend all lectures. It will save you time-- the instructor will
explain difficult concepts, indicate what material to focus on, and
give insights not available elsewhere.
- Start assignments when assigned and make progress each day.
This will give your brain more calendar time to process the information
and reduce panic before the deadline.
