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.

7. Final Grade Determination
The final grade in this course will be based on the following components:

             Component                                           Weight
             Assignments                                           15 %
             Laboratory Reports                                    10 %
             Midterm Examination                                   25 %
             Final Examination                                     50 %

             TOTAL                                               100 %

Note: It is not necessary to earn a passing grade on the final exam in order to pass the
course as a whole.
