Information theory is the mathematical theory that deals with the fundamental aspects of communication systems. This **[course_title]** is meant to serve as an introduction to some basic concepts in information theory and error-correcting codes, and some of their applications in computer science and statistics. It covers the basics of information theory like the information associated with an event, entropy, mutual information, data processing theorem, source coding, Huffman codes, channel capacity and the channel coding theorem.

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
