Description Prereqs: General Calculus (MTH140 or MTH 160 sequences). The first course in physics: i.e. general physics I or mechanics (i.e., PHY121 taken concurrently), can provide a helpful background Research frontiers in earth imaging, quake detection, volcano and nuclear explosion monitoring, require extraction of seismic and acoustic signals buried in noise. Seismoacoustic signals are mechanical vibrations generated in the solid earth and its coupling with the fluid atmosphere and oceans. In this course we will introduce linear system theory, digital signal processing and how they enable routine processing of recorded Seismoacoustic waves contaminated by the nuisance of ‘noise’. Topics include Fourier analysis, spectrograms, ztransforms, poleszeros, instrument design, (de)convolution, autocorrelation, crossspectra, and filter theory: homomorphic filters, cepstral analysis. Exemplary data will cover geotechnical engineering, forensic, exploration, glacial, submarine and planetary seismology.

Machine Learning (ML) is the branch of Artificial Intelligence dedicated to teaching computers how to solve tasks by learning from data. This class introduces basic concepts of machine learning through various realworld ECE applications. It will cover various learning paradigms such as supervised learning, semisupervised learning, unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning. It will also cover classical and stateoftheart techniques such as linear models, support vector machines, Gaussian mixture models, hidden Markov models, matrix factorization, ensemble learning, principal component analysis, and various kinds of deep neural networks. Students will learn the pros and cons of different methods and their suited application scenarios. This course is handson with multiple programming assignments and a final project to solve real ECE problems. Prerequisites: General programming such as ECE114; MATH 165 linear algebra. Probability and statistics such as ECE 270 is recommended.

The principal focus of ECE 113 is frequency domain representation of time signals, starting with phasors and ending with elements of Fourier series and Fourier transforms. Mathematics is introduced as needed for the specific material being covered, including: complex numbers, initial value problems, Laplace transform pairs, matrices, Fourier series, and Fourier transforms, including convolution. In addition, some effort is devoted to nonlinear circuit analysis using loadlines. Concurrent registration in MATH 165 and PHYS 122

Thomas Howard


This course covers control and planning algorithms with applications in robotics. Topics include forward and inverse kinematics, dynamics, joint space control, operational space control, robot trajectory planning, search spaces, search algorithms, grasping, manipulation, and applications of such topics on mobile robots and robotic manipulators. It is expected by the end of the course that students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how robots plan paths and trajectories in the context of their perceived environment in simulation and on physical robots through laboratory exercises. Performance is evaluated through homework assignments, coding assessments, exams, and a course project. PREREQUISITE: ECE 216

William Moon


This course provides an introduction to the C and C++ programming languages and the key techniques of software programming in general. Students will learn C/C++ syntax and semantics, program design, debugging, and software engineering fundamentals, including objectoriented programming. In addition, students will develop skills in problem solving with algorithms. Programming assignments will be used as the primary means of strengthening and evaluating these skills. Each student also has to complete a game project in C++ at the end of the semester.

Description Prereqs: General Calculus (MTH140 or MTH 160 sequences). The first course in physics: i.e. general physics I or mechanics (i.e., PHY121 taken concurrently), can provide a helpful background Research frontiers in earth imaging, quake detection, volcano and nuclear explosion monitoring, require extraction of seismic and acoustic signals buried in noise. Seismoacoustic signals are mechanical vibrations generated in the solid earth and its coupling with the fluid atmosphere and oceans. In this course we will introduce linear system theory, digital signal processing and how they enable routine processing of recorded Seismoacoustic waves contaminated by the nuisance of ‘noise’. Topics include Fourier analysis, spectrograms, ztransforms, poleszeros, instrument design, (de)convolution, autocorrelation, crossspectra, and filter theory: homomorphic filters, cepstral analysis. Exemplary data will cover geotechnical engineering, forensic, exploration, glacial, submarine and planetary seismology.
