Currently Teaching

CPET-499
0 Credits
One semester or summer block of appropriate work experience in a related industry. Students are required to complete a poster and presentation and participate in the ECTET co-op presentation evening at the completion of each co-op experience. Department permission is required.
EEET-425
4 Credits
Develops the knowledge and ability to process signals using Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques. Starts with foundational concepts in sampling, probability, statistics, noise, fixed and floating point number systems, and describes how they affect real world performance of DSP systems. Fundamental principles of convolution, linearity, duality, impulse responses, and discrete fourier transforms are used to develop FIR and IIR digital filters and to explain DSP techniques such as windowing. Students get an integrated lab experience writing DSP code that executes in real-time on DSP hardware.
