Spring 2018 Updates

Course Update
ECE 5 This course is now open to Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors in the ECE Department. EE students following the new FA17 curriculum must take this course for a letter grade starting in Winter ’18. 
ECE 16

Enrollment is now open to Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors.  If you are above Freshman standing and would like to take ECE 16 please submit your request to enroll through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy).   Prerequisites: MAE 8 or CSE 8B or CSE 11 or ECE 15.

This course will now count as a Technical Elective for EE majors so please send a message to the Virtual Advising Center if you would like this course to count as a Technical Elective.

ECE 120 Priority enrollment will be given to ECE majors.  Beginning week 10, non-ECE majors please submit your request to enroll through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy).  
ECE 180 A00  Software Foundations II (Gessner) -Software Foundations is a two-part software analysis, design, and development course sequence aimed at helping ECE students gain practical software skills.  Building on fundamental concepts from our first term, we will explore intermediate to advanced object design patterns, complex data-structures and applied algorithms, modern software design and development methods, and review practical techniques for designing custom algorithms. Students will continue to design, implement and debug C++ based solutions on group-based assignments. Prerequisite: ECE 180 (C00): Software Foundations I (WI18). To enroll, please submit your request through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy).
ECE 180 B00 Power Grid Resiliency for Adverse Systems (Abi-Samra)- This course offers unique insight and practical answers through examples, of how power systems can be affected by weather and how countermeasures can be applied to mitigate them. It will provide valuable information summarizing many lessons learned from previous extreme weather events that affected the power system. It will cover detailed explanations of the impacts of extreme weather and covers applicable industry standards and initiatives.  It will introduce topics not previously covered in any references, textbooks, courses or technical papers. System resiliency is the number 1 concern for electrical utilities in 2018 (https://d12v9rtnomnebu.cloudfront.net/paychek/Utility_Trend_2018.pdf). 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.  The course will be given by a nationally and international recognized expert in the field of resiliency, who is often interviewed on the subject( https://spectrum.ieee.org/energywise/energy/the-smarter-grid/learning-from-grid-failures-a-conversation-with-nicholas-abisamra). Prerequisites: None. To enroll, please submit your request through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy).
ECE 180 C00 Motor Drives (Esmaili)- Control of AC and DC motors has been a work in progress for the past century. Recent rapid advances in power electronics control and power switches has made it much easier to control the motors with much higher quality at much lower cost. Traditional industrial motor drives, EV and HEV, and wind energy are a few applications of the variable motor drives. Motor drive course provides control technique such as vector control and direct torque control (DTC) of the induction machines. Moreover, this course introduces different control method for direct current motors using different type of power converters, such as DC-DC and AC-DC converters. Prerequisite: ECE 121A. To enroll, please submit your request through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy).
ECE 188 A00 LabVIEW Programming - An interactive LabVIEW programming course designed to teach students how to design and develop LabVIEW applications. The course will prepare students for the NI Certified LabVIEW associate develop (CLAD) exam as well as provide hands-on engineering through team oriented labVIEW projects. Prerequisites: ECE 15 or CSE 8B or CSE 11. To enroll, please submit your request through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy).
ECE 196 Enrollment is open to Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors. If you are a Sophomore please submit your request to enroll through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy).
ECE 197 Effective Fall 2016, CE majors; may not use ECE 197 towards their technical elective. This will be strictly enforced. EE, EP, EE& Society majors can use ECE 197 towards Professional Electives only.

Prerequisites

Effective Spring 2016, Undergraduate students who do not have prerequisites in non-core ECE courses and want to enroll in a specific course, will need faculty approval through the online course pre-authorization system. Please note that this system is for Undergraduate students only.  ECE Graduate students send their enrollment requests to add ECE courses through the clear me form.
