ECE215 : Circuit Theory and Devices (Credits: 4)

This course intends to develop problem solving skills and understanding of circuit theory through the application of techniques and principles of electrical circuit analysis to common circuit problems. Subsequently, most common aspects such as filter realization and stability will be elaborated through frequency response analysis, feedback topologies etc. Broadly, the goals of the course are to inculcate understanding of: (a) waveforms, signals, transient, and steady-state responses of RLC circuits, (b) the ability to apply circuit analysis to AC circuits, and (c) advanced mathematical methods such as Laplace and Fourier transforms along with linear algebra and differential equations techniques for solving circuits problems.

ECE431/ECE631 : Antenna Theory and Design (Credits: 4)

The course aims to introduce the principles of antenna theory and design as well as wave propagation to senior undergraduate and graduate students who have a background in fundamental electromagnetics. The course will enable the students to understand the operation of common antennas and provide them an opportunity to design and test antennas. Thus the course will combine both the theoretical and practical aspects of antenna design. This course may be useful to students interested in implementing wireless systems (communications and radar).

ECE432 /ECE632 : Radar Systems (Credits: 4)

The course aims to introduce the principles of radar systems to senior undergraduate and graduate students. The course will combine system perspectives, radar phenomenology concepts such as radar cross-section and clutter, and popular waveform design and signal processing techniques. The course will conclude with a brief discussion of common radar applications (weather radar, police radar, air traffic control etc.)
