Autumn 2018: Circuit Theory (EE 233). This course is a direct extension of EE 215 and PHYS 122, where power and filters are analyzed using Phasor transforms and Laplace transforms. Examples include DTMF in telephones, graphic equalizer, AM radio, “why does my light bulb blow out so often” etc. Be prepared to spend a substantial amount of time if you take this course.
Winter 2019: Quantum Mechanics for Engineers (EE 421 and EE 521). Introduces students to a perspective of the quantum world around us and encourages the students to start thinking “quantum”. The course deals with quantum dots, quantum wells, nanowires, current flow, tunneling, basics of light absorption and quantum information. The graduate students will also learn perturbation theory. The undergraduate version of this course (EE 421) will focus on the appreciation of the quantum world, current applications, emerging applications and appreciation of the underlying equations. In the graduate version of the course (EE 521), the students will be responsible for a number of derivations. The students will be given a set typewritten lecture notes including end of chapter problems.
Spring 2019: Devices and Circuits I (EE 331). This course teaches students semiconductor fundamentals, basic operation principle of diodes and transistors. The circuit applications included voltage doubler, voltage regulator, rectifiers, inverters, basics logic gates. This is a fast paced and challenging course as it integrates quite a bit of math, device physics and circuits. Be prepared to spend a substantial amount of time if you take this course.
