Create a working electronic project using low-cost and easy-to-program Arduino development boards. Example projects may include wearable electronics, robots, and electronic displays. An introduction to the C programming language will be provided along with the basics of embedded electronics and the Internet of Things.
This is the first non-linear electronics class that introduces the students to the fundamentals of the circuit design through the architecture of a modern electronics system at the interface with sensors and actuators. Modeling of the non-linear devices, diode and MOS transistors, is presented, along with basic properties of MOS transistors for analog (amplification) and digital (switching) IC circuit design. Operational amplifier ideal and non-ideal models are explored along with the concepts of the feedback and stability. Signal conditioning circuits (fixed-gain, difference and instrumentation amplifiers, active filters), signal shaping circuits (rectifier, clipper, peak detector) and oscillators are presented. Basics of sample and hold circuit, data converters, digital signal processing platforms and radios are presented.

Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline concerned with the study, design, and application of equipment, devices, and systems which use electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. It emerged as an identifiable occupation in the latter half of the 19th century after commercialization of the electric telegraph, the telephone, and electrical power generation, distribution, and use.
The MOSFET made it possible to build high-density integrated circuit chips. The earliest experimental MOS IC chip to be fabricated was built by Fred Heiman and Steven Hofstein at RCA Laboratories in 1962. MOS technology enabled Moore's law, the doubling of transistors on an IC chip every two years, predicted by Gordon Moore in 1965. Silicon-gate MOS technology was developed by Federico Faggin at Fairchild in 1968. Since then, the MOSFET has been the basic building block of modern electronics. The mass-production of silicon MOSFETs and MOS integrated circuit chips, along with continuous MOSFET scaling miniaturization at an exponential pace (as predicted by Moore's law), has since led to revolutionary changes in technology, economy, culture and thinking.
Power & Energy engineering deals with the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity as well as the design of a range of related devices. These include transformers, electric generators, electric motors, high voltage engineering, and power electronics. In many regions of the world, governments maintain an electrical network called a power grid that connects a variety of generators together with users of their energy. Users purchase electrical energy from the grid, avoiding the costly exercise of having to generate their own. Power engineers may work on the design and maintenance of the power grid as well as the power systems that connect to it. Such systems are called on-grid power systems and may supply the grid with additional power, draw power from the grid, or do both. Power engineers may also work on systems that do not connect to the grid, called off-grid power systems, which in some cases are preferable to on-grid systems.
A wide range of instrumentation is used by electrical engineers. For simple control circuits and alarms, a basic multimeter measuring voltage, current, and resistance may suffice. Where time-varying signals need to be studied, the oscilloscope is also an ubiquitous instrument. In RF engineering and high frequency telecommunications, spectrum analyzers and network analyzers are used. In some disciplines, safety can be a particular concern with instrumentation. For instance, medical electronics designers must take into account that much lower voltages than normal can be dangerous when electrodes are directly in contact with internal body fluids. Power transmission engineering also has great safety concerns due to the high voltages used; although voltmeters may in principle be similar to their low voltage equivalents, safety and calibration issues make them very different. Many disciplines of electrical engineering use tests specific to their discipline. Audio electronics engineers use audio test sets consisting of a signal generator and a meter, principally to measure level but also other parameters such as harmonic distortion and noise. Likewise, information technology have their own test sets, often specific to a particular data format, and the same is true of television broadcasting.
AC and DC circuits; machinery; controls; and introduction to electronic devices, circuits, and instrumentation. EET 100 Electric Circuits, Power, and Electronics (3) Electric Circuits, Power, and Electronics is a course for non-major students who will be working with electronic equipment in industry. This course starts with basic knowledge of DC and AC components and concepts used in industrial electrical work. Topics such as circuits, electromagnetism, sources, energy conversion and electrical instruments prepare students to continue with topics in electronics. Beginning with the basics of semiconductors and moving through diodes and transistors, the student is prepared to learn the concepts of rectification and amplification. These form a foundation for the completion of the course with a look at understanding the concepts and use of analog and digital circuitry found in Programmable Logic Control (PLC) systems used in industry today.
This course will help students to understand power generation units, transmission lines, distribution systems and load flow. The main power system elements will be studied in detail. These elements include: generators (to generate electricity), transformers (to step up/down voltage levels for transmission purposes), transmission lines (in order to transmit the power from one location to another with minimum dissipation), and distribution systems (in order to distribute the transmitted power to customers). The course also helps students to learn the concept of fault analysis, the effect of line length on transmission lines, and the calculation of losses in synchronous generators. The basic theory of complex numbers will be used to simplify the analysis and calculations. Students will understand the typical operating principles for different types of power plants including: nuclear, coal, gas, wind, and solar.
Principles and applications of optoelectronics including sources, detectors, imagers, transmitters, fiber optics, systems and integrated optics. This course is designed as an elective course for the EET senior undergraduate students. This course introduces some critical components that are needed in fiber optic communication systems. This includes optical transmitters (Light emitting diode, and laser diodes), optical receivers (i.e., photodetector), modulators and demodulators, optical couplers (how to connect more than two fibers together), and optical amplifiers (including the basic principle of erbium doped fiber optic amplifiers). The topics covered in this course include Optics Review, Lightwave Fundamentals, Measuring Light, Optical Waveguides, Light Sources and Detectors, Couplers and Connectors, Noise and Detection, and System Design. Relevant laboratory experiences are used to reinforce the topics covered in class.
