Electrical and Computer EngineeringECE 30 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.


Prerequisite(s): MATH 19B. Enrollment is restricted to computer engineering, computer science: computer game design, computer science, network and digital technology, and technology and information management majors and proposed majors; and to computer engineering, computer science, and technology and information management minors.
