AbstractThe field of wireless communications even in its restriction to cellular systems continues to expand rapidly. As such, its introduction in the undergraduate curriculum is very important. However the field is highly interdisciplinary in the context of the basic disciplines of electrical engineering such as signal processing, communication systems, electromagnetics, and proba- bility and random processes. The field is by its own nature also highly mathematical in various aspects of signal processing and probability, and in so being poses challenges in the introduction to undergraduate students who may not have the required mathematical maturity. In this paper we present an approach to the introduction of this field in the undergraduate curriculum.
