Course Description

ECE Fundamentals is a course that introduces students to the fundamental concepts and principles of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). The course covers a wide range of topics related to ECE, including electric circuits, signal processing, digital logic design, microprocessors, and communication systems. Students will learn how to analyze and design these systems, and how they are used in various applications. The course begins by introducing basic concepts in electric circuits, such as Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's laws, and network theorems. Students will learn how to analyze simple circuits and solve problems related to voltage, current, and power. The course then moves on to signal processing, which involves the manipulation and analysis of signals such as audio, video, and images. Students will learn about frequency domain analysis, filtering, and modulation techniques, and how they are used in various applications such as audio and video compression. The course also covers digital logic design, which involves the design and analysis of digital circuits using Boolean algebra and logic gates. Students will learn how to design and implement basic logic circuits, such as adders, flip-flops, and registers. Microprocessors and communication systems are also covered in the course. Students will learn about the architecture of microprocessors, how to program them using assembly language, and how to interface them with other devices. Communication systems cover the principles of data transmission, modulation, and encoding used in wireless and wired networks. Throughout the course, students will have opportunities to apply their knowledge through hands-on activities, such as building circuits, programming microcontrollers, and designing digital systems. By the end of the course, students will have gained a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts and principles of ECE. They will be well-prepared for further studies in ECE or related fields, as well as for careers in industries that require knowledge of ECE fundamentals, such as telecommunications, aerospace, and electronics.
