Spring 2021 Updates

All ECE courses in SP21 will have a remote component but some courses will have in-person options. For more detailed information how some ECE courses will be offered, please visit the link here

Course Updates
In-Person Courses Most ECE Undergraduate courses will be offered Remotely in SP21. However, the following course components will offered In-Person (with a Remote option as well): ECE 35 Lecture and Discussion Section (Labs will be Remote), ECE 148 Lecture and Lab. 
ECE 128C

Power Grid Resiliency (Abi-Samra). This course offers unique insight and practical answers through examples, of how  p

+ower 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. The  course exposes 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.

As usual in these classes, we are also planning for industry guest lectures.

Prerequisites: No prerequisites needed but students must submit an EASy request to enroll.

ECE 148

Introduction to Autonomous Vehicles (Silberman). To enroll: The application is now closed. Students will be notified through the EASy system the week of 2/8 if they were admitted to the course.  

Please note that there are only 12 spots for ECE students and usually a large waitlist.  If any student drops the course up until the first day of class, we will notify the next student on the waitlist that they have been cleared to add, so make sure to continually check your @ucsd email address for possible updates about your registration status in this course.  

Graduate Level Courses Undergrads must submit an EASy request to enroll. EASy requests will be approved after ECE Graduate student enrollment is finalized. Please note that undergrads cannot be added to a graduate level course waitlist. Students will not be cleared to add until the first day of the quarter, with Professor approval and space availability in the course.

 

***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.

We understand that you need these courses to graduate so please be patient as we work on enlarging enrollment. The Department will do everything we can to accommodate students so please be patient. Waitlist yourself into the class and if seats become available, students will be enrolled in the order they waitlisted. We cannot guarantee that you will get into the course. If you need assistance with an alternate course, stop by during walk in advising hours in Jacobs Hall 2701 or 2702.

***During the enrollment period, it is critical that you check your UCSD email for any updates. This may have an impact on your schedule.***

****If enrollment limits are increased, it takes the system overnight to process this command. Students will be added in the order they are on the waitlist. Please have patience.****
