Currently Teaching

EEET-116
1 Credits
This laboratory develops skills and practice in the construction, measurement and analysis of DC and introductory AC circuits. Standard laboratory equipment is introduced and utilized to measure resistance, voltage and current in basic and relatively complex circuit configurations. Measurements are employed extensively to verify Ohm's Law; Kirchoff’s Voltage and Kirchoff’s Current Laws and to demonstrate current and voltage division. Circuit simulation software is used throughout to support calculations and establish a baseline for comparison. Students collaborate within teams to research technology areas of curiosity, observe trends about the changing world and inform their peers via verbal presentations.
EEET-121
3 Credits
Develops the skills to analyze and design practical AC circuits used in electrical systems. Topics include network theorems, reactance and impedance, AC power and power factor, resonance, maximum power transfer, frequency response, and bandwidth.
EEET-122
1 Credits
Develops skills and practice in the design, fabrication, measurement, and analysis of practical AC circuits used in electrical systems. Topics include network theorems, reactance and impedance, AC power and power factor, resonance, maximum power transfer, frequency response, and bandwidth.
EEET-313
3 Credits
Develops the knowledge and ability to design communication electronics, such as AM/FM radios using transistors and integrated circuits. This course applies the concepts of circuits and electronics to basic analog communication circuits for amplitude and frequency modulation. Topics studied are RF Amplifiers, Fourier Analysis, AM and FM transmission and reception, phase-locked loops, synthesizers, oscillators, DSB and SSB communication systems, antennas and EM wave propagation. The course’s laboratory component Provides experience in the practice and application of the concepts of circuits and electronics to basic analog communication circuits for amplitude and frequency modulation in a laboratory environment. Construction and measurement are emphasized. Student must register for BOTH the Lecture and Laboratory components of this course.
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.
EEET-433
3 Credits
Develops the knowledge and ability to analyze, design, and measure high frequency signal transmission media as applied to digital and RF systems. Topics include the propagation of electromagnetic waves on wire media; transmission line voltage, current, loss and impedance; graphical methods for analysis; transmission lines as circuit elements, application of the general transmission line equation as derived from the LC distributed model. During the course’s laboratory component, students learn proper transmission line instrumentation techniques and design transmission line circuits that meet design specifications. Student must register for both the lecture and laboratory components of this course.
