2. Learning Outcomes
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
      Analyse systems containing both continuous- and discrete-time elements in the
       continuous frequency (i.e. s) domain.
      Analyse systems containing both continuous- and discrete-time elements in the
       discrete frequency (i.e. z) domain.
      Design discrete-time controllers using classical transfer function based methods
       in the z- domain.
      Design discrete-time controllers for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO)
       systems using state-feedback and state-observers.
