Electrical Engineering program description.
|ECE1813||Electricity and Magnetism||4 ch (3C 1T 3L*)|
An introduction to the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism and applications. Covers concepts of charge, electric fields, voltage, current, power, energy, magnetic fields and the link between electricity and magnetism for the creation of machines. Includes resistors, resistance, Ohm's law, Kirchoff's voltage and current laws, some electrical properties of materials. Electric sources, simple series, paralell, and series-paralell DC circuits and mesh analysis are examined. Energy conversion and simple electric machines are examined. The behaviour and use of common sensors and transducers are discussed.
Prerequisite: Two years of high school physics (or equivalent).
Co-requisite: MATH 1003.
|ECE2214||Digital Logic Design||3 ch (3C 1T)|
An introductory course to practical aspects of digital system design. The course covers digital logic design, including basic design concepts and implementation technology, number representations, synthesis of combinational and sequential logic, and the use of HDL and computer-based tools.
|ECE2215||Digital Logic Design Laboratory||1 ch (2L)|
This is an introductory course to practical aspects of digital systems design. Course includes the design of digital circuits with CAD tools and VHDL hardware description language.
|ECE2412||Simulation and Engineering Analysis||4 ch (3C 3L*)|
An introduction to modelling and numerical methods as applied in the solution of engineering problems. The solution of nonlinear equations, polynomials, curve fitting, numerical integration and difference equations. Simulation tools such as MATLAB will be used.
