EE 3401: Engineering Electronics
This course introduces the basic circuits used in analog signal processing systems. The primary focus will be on studying bias circuits and small signal models for diodes, BJTs and MOSFETs. In addition, functional circuits including diode rectifiers, logic circuits, and basic amplifier circuits using single transistors are discussed. A brief introduction to op-amps as signal processing blocks is included. Students put their analog circuit theory into practice in the laboratory.
EE 3702: Communication Systems
Amplitude modulation, frequency and phase modulation and demodulation techniques are examined. Bandwidth and power considerations, noise in communication systems, signal analysis and transmission are included as are noise and probability aspects of communication systems and practical communication systems.
EE 4201: Control Systems
The focus of this course is a study of feedback control systems theory including practical applications of compensation and P,PI, and PID concepts. Control system modeling, transient and steady state characteristics and response, stability and frequency response are analyzed; Compensation and controller design using Root locus methods are covered. The use of control system software, such as MATLAB, in the analysis and design of control systems is emphasized.
EE 4701: Professional Practice
This course covers the historical, social and economic considerations of the electrical engineering discipline. It includes studies of professional conduct, risks, and liabilities, and intellectual property relative to the electrical engineering profession. Electrical Engineering case studies will be use. Further the study of professional ethics, electrical code fundamentals (i.e. NEC), laws governing the practice of electrical engineering, contractual relationships, the licensure process for professional engineers are all undertaken in this course.
