Foundation Electives

Foundation electives are classes that are almost required, in that students must choose some classes from a very restricted list.

ELEG majors must take three of the following classes:

CPEG majors must take one of the following classes (cannot count CPEG 323 since it is a core course for your major):


CPEG 323 Introduction to Computer Systems Engineering

3 credits

Studies general purpose, special purpose and embedded computer architecture. Principles of digital system design introduced including an introduction to tools for automated design and use of programmable logic devices.

PREREQ: CPEG 222


ELEG 306 Digital Signal Processing

3 credits

Topics introduced in ELEG305 at a more advanced level. Introduces filter design, transmission line analysis, the discrete Fourier transform, the fast Fourier transform and roundoff effects.

PREREQ: ELEG305.


ELEG 312 Electronic Circuit Analysis II

4 credits

Low-frequency and high-frequency response of RC-coupled amplifiers, Class A tuned amplifiers, tuned power amplifiers, frequency response and stability of feedback amplifiers, oscillators, modulation and demodulation circuits.

PREREQ: ELEG309.


ELEG 403 Communication Systems Engineering

3 credits

Review of signal theory, Fourier transforms, linear and time-invariant systems; review of probability and random signals; information theory, source entropy, channel capacity; based-band data transmission, modulation, noise in analog systems and digital carrier modulation.

PREREQ: ELEG305 and ELEG310 or permission of instructor.


ELEG 413 Field Theory II

3 credits

Electrodynamics based on Maxwell's equations. Energy storage and flow in electromagnetic fields. Transmission lines, waves and radiating systems.

PREREQ: ELEG320.


ELEG 418 Digital Control Systems

3 credits

Study of closed-loop analog and digital control systems. Stability and performance analysis in time and frequency domains. Frequency and state-space design methods, including root-locus methods, Bode and Nyquist methods, and pole placement using Ackermann's formula. Computer-aided simulation and design uses MATLAB and SIMULINK.

PREREQ: ELEG305 or permission of instructor.


ELEG 456 Electric Power II

3 credits

This is the second course in electric power systems. This course covers the construction materials and design principals of indoor and underground three phase low and high voltage electric power systems, system economics, reliability, load characteristics, load management, and metering.

PREREQ: ELEG415.


ELEG 492 Radar Systems & Technology

3 credits

Introduction of basic RADAR concepts and operational scenarios. The RADAR range is developed as are concepts related to RADAR cross-section, waveform design, antennas, transmitter and receivers.

PREREQ: ELEG320, ELEG 305.
