Abstract. In recent years, there have been a great interest  on combinatorial designs. Combinatorial design theory has not only a deep respected and advanced mathematical heritage but also has produced genuine new applications that attract many engineers. Combinatorial designs find applications in signal processing, dealing with radar problems, error-correction codes, optical orthogonal codes and image processing. In this talk we will investigate some of the central objects of the combinatorial designs and  briefly investigate the interplay between  geometry, finite groups, and error-correcting codes.
