Undergraduate Courses

Linear Systems (Sistemas Lineales)
Program: Bachelor in Telecommunication Technologies Engineering
Years: 2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020
Language: Spanish
Description:  This course provides the students with the theoretical and methodological knowledge necessary to work with continuous and discrete-time signals and LTI (linear and time-invariant) systems in the frequency domain.
Material: Course notes and slides (in Spanish).
Introduction to Quantum Communications and Computing
(Introducción a la Comunicación y la Computación Cuántica)
Program: Bachelor in Telecommunication Technologies Engineering (and other)
Years: 2019-2020
Language: Spanish
Description:  This course introduces the fundamental concepts of quantum communication and computing. Starting from an experimental basis, the course motivates why the classical theory of probability is not able to model certain real physical systems and presents a new quantum theory of probability. This theory is then used to analyze several problems, including the transmission of information, the teleportation and quantum computation.
Material: Course slides and exercises (in Spanish).
