ECE30: Engineering Principles of Electronics


Suitable for sophomores pursuing computer science and engineering careers. Aims at deriving basic engineering principles directly from examples relevant to computing and electronics: 1) Newton’s Laws and related fundamental mechanics; 2) basic thermodynamics and heat/energy transfer; 3) key electromagnetic principles, including Coulomb’s Law, Gauss’s Law, and basic circuit analysis using Kirchoff’s Laws/Rules; and 4) Ray optics for fiber optic communications and camera electronics. General Education: SI scientific inquiry
Prerequisite(s): MATH 19B. Enrollment is restricted to majors and proposed majors in computer engineering, computer science: computer game design, computer science and engineering, network and digital technology, and technology and information management; and to minors in computer engineering, computer science and engineering, and technology and information management.
