ECE 483: Intro to Communication Systems This course emphasizes Fourier Series/Transform and FFT, frequency shifting concepts ideally and in reality. Analog modulation techniques and technology including digital enhancement techniques (amplitude, sideband and frequency modulation), sampling theory and digital modulation (PAM, PWM, PPM, PCM) are considered. Noise aspects considered in determining best SNR technique. Both time and frequency multiplexing and practical examples are included. Prerequisite: ECE 330 3 credits ECE 484: Wireless System Applications This course will cover topics in wireless and mobile communications and their application to the design of systems and networks. These topics will include cellular concepts, beam formation, path loss, fading, and multi-path in radio propagation, digital modulation formats, equalization, diversity, coding, and multiple access techniques. Wireless local area networks (WLAN), global system for mobile (GSM), and wideband CDMA (W-CDMA) will be discussed. Prerequisites: ECE 330 and ECE 335 3 credits ECE 485: Advanced Programming In C/C++ Problem analysis. Translation path from pseudo-code to implementation. Comparison of C and C++ implementations. Critical evaluation of time, memory, and program structure. Programming style. Prerequisite: ECE 111 3 credits ECE 486: Object-Oriented Modeling An advanced treatment of methods for producing an object-oriented design, including structural, behavioral, and architectural design. Focus is on Object-Oriented analysis and design methods and design processes they support. Includes treatment of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) techniques and their application to systems/software development. Prerequisite: ECE 216 3 credits ECE 488: Modern Control Theory Linear spaces and operators, mathematical descriptions of systems. Linear dynamical systems and impulse response, matrices. Controllability and observability of linear dynamical systems. Irreducible realizations of rational transfer function matrices. Canonical forms, state feedback and state estimators. Stability of linear systems. Composite systems; linear optimal control and linear distributed systems. Prerequisite: ECE 326 3 credits ECE 489: Digital Control This course deals with the control of dynamic systems by employing classical and modern control tools incorporating a digital computer in the control loop. It builds upon the foundational concepts of continuous-time control, and provides the background needed for practicing engineers to enhance their knowledge in the area of digital control system. Topics of discussion are state-space and transfer function representations, Z-transform, digital control system design, filter design, state-space approach to control system design, linearization, stability, system identification, and adaptive control. Prerequisite: ECE 326 3 credits ECE 490-499: Advanced Topics in Electrical and Computer Engineering Advanced courses developed from student interest in all areas of electrical engineering. Brief description of current content to be announced in schedule of classes. Prerequisite: Permission of the chair. 1-3 credits SEECS (101, 102, 201, 202, 301, 302, 401, 402): Professional and Personal Enrichment Seminar Course description is listed in Computer & Information Science section of the catalog. 0 credit, Fall and Spring
