ECE 148 Introduction to Autonomous Vehicles (de Oliveira/Silberman). To enroll: The application for SP19 is now closed.  ECE 148 will be offered in SU19 and the following academic year. For those who applied in SP19, the first 24 students who were approved will be notified by 2/25 via the EASy system.  As space becomes available after the first 24 students enroll, we will notify the next student on the waitlist to enroll.  Please note that ECE 148 is limited by lab space and there is typically a large waitlist so not all students will be able to add.  

ECE 180 

Power Grid Resiliency for Adverse Conditions (Abi-Samra). This course offers unique insight and practical answers through examples, of how power grids can be affected by weather and how countermeasures can be applied to mitigate them.  It will cover detailed explanations of the impacts of extreme weather and covers applicable industry standards. It will introduce topics not previously covered in any references, textbooks, courses, or technical papers. It will expose the student to many proven practices for successful restoration of the power grid, increased system resiliency, and ride-through after extreme weather, providing examples from around the globe and provide the analytics for all of those. System resiliency is the number 1 concern for electrical utilities according to CEO of the largest system operator in North America. Prerequisites: none. To enroll, please submit your request through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy).
ECE 188

Machine Learning for the Arts (Twomey). This course explores the vital new domain of Machine Learning (ML) for the Arts. Through hands-on experience applying state of the art ML tools, students will develop skills and perspectives on contemporary approaches. This project-based course will be conducted primarily in python using popular machine learning and scientific computing toolkits. Students will be responsible both for technical implementation and creative value of course projects. More information can be found here Prerequisites: ECE16, ECE143, or equivalent course on Python. Students also need to attend boot camp on Thurs, March 21st from 10-3pm. To enroll: Students must sign up here to attend boot camp, which is required to register for the course in SP19. Approved students will then be allowed to enroll in ECE 188 with approval from the Professor.

Graduate Level Courses Undergrads must submit an EASy request to enroll. EASy requests will be processed starting week 10 to allow graduate students to enroll first. Please note that undergrads cannot be added to a graduate level course waitlist.
