Abstract
A new laboratory course in communications system has been developed and implemented for the graduate students. This course first teaches students how to verify the effectiveness and correctness of the designed communication system based on MATLAB by simulation, and then, on the basis of the previous verification, how to implement the designed communication system using software-defined radio (SDR) platform. The main aim of the course is to let students apply their theoretical knowledge from previous courses to design a communication system by themselves, and thus better comprehend the theoretical concepts in communication systems. In contrast to the existing courses, a broader range of subjects to do with communication systems are include in the course, which covers the theoretical aspects, simulation, teamwork ability training and laboratory part. Evaluations based on students' results and opinions demonstrate that the implementation of such a scheme in the course is readily feasible.
