Newsreel from 1956 showing William Shockley, Walter Brattain, and Illinios' John Bardeen receiving the Nobel Prize for the transistor.
Analog Signal Processing teaches students key signal processing theory and provides application of this theory in the laboratory through the construction of an AM radio. Emphasis is given to circuit analysis, differential equations, convolutions, and applications in filtering. Students learn to use advanced options on the oscilloscope and other engineering tools and see the application of diodes, capacitors, and resistors. At the conclusion of the semester students tune their newly designed radio to their favorite AM station to see their design at work!
The objective of ECE 415: Biomedical Instrumentation, is to prepare students for the ever-increasing convergence of engineering, medicine, and biology. Using a hands-on, in-the-laboratory approach, this class teaches students the basics of engineering and designing the detection, acquisition, processing, and display of biosignals from living systems. Measuring signals from the body, making amplifiers, and measuring brain waves and muscles
Theory and Fabrication of Integrated Circuit Devices is a pioneering class that uses the departments state-of-the-art fabrication lab. The goal of this course is to give students a thorough understanding of the design and process technology of modern integrated circuits. This lab provides hands-on exposure to all aspects of processing technology, experience in the design of semiconductor device processes and a clear understanding of the economic and technical trade-offs inherent in this industry. By the end of the semester, students will have experience with each step of the integrated circuit manufacturing process.
Power Electronics teaches students the hands-on aspects of power electronics including the use of electronic circuits for processing and control of electrical energy. This class covers conventional and non-conventional energy sources and requirements including batteries, solar power, motor control, alternative resource conversion, and hybrid and electric vehicles. Interested in making revolutionary changes to how we process, deliver, and use energy? Any student with a serious interest in our energy future should take this class.
All ECE ILLINOIS students must take ECE 110:Intro to Computer and Electrical Engineering.
ECE¬†460: Optical Imaging¬†covers visible and infrared imaging systems including fields, optical elements, electronic sensors, and embedded processing systems.
