An introduction to Electrical Engineering to illustrate concepts, methods, problem solving approaches, and tools unique to Electrical Engineering. Students will be introduced to skills they need to succeed in all subsequent Engineering courses. Students will learn about laws and rules related to academic integrity and professional ethical responsibilities. Five areas within Electrical Engineering will be highlighted with examples from analog and digital electronic circuits, control and robotics, microwave and optical engineering, telecommunication/signal processing, and energy systems. Selected speakers will make presentations to highlight the five areas and emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of Engineering. Ideally this will help the student make decisions about areas of interest to pursue as elective courses later in the curriculum. Computer access is required (laptop preferred) and general computer skills are expected. Prerequisite: Grade C or better in MATH 1426 (or concurrent enrollment). Concurrent enrollment with EE 1106 is recommended.
