ECE 101 Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Real World 1.0 Credit

This seminar introduces students to highly visible and compelling applications of ECE through the use of familiar real-world applications. The course will highlight some of the high-impact advances of ECE and the importance of ECE in our daily lives. Fundamental concepts, such as electricity, light, computing, networking, and signal processing will be introduced in this context and explained at an introductory level. This course is intended to inspire students to pursue ECE and will lead them directly into ECE 102.

ECE 121 Introduction to Entertainment Engineering 3.0 Credits

This introductory survey course will focus on the four prevailing entertainment media: music, images, video, and games. We will explore how each medium is represented digitally and reveal the technologies used to capture, manipulate and display such content. Technical standards used in everyday entertainment devices (mp3, H.264, JPEG 1080p, HDMI) will be explained in layman's terms. The goal is to provide students with technical literacy for using digital media.
