Description

Computing, communication and control systems are the heart of today’s high-tech industries and these sophisticated systems are all designed based on a few fundamental concepts in electrical and computer engineering. This action-packed two-week course introduces students to building circuits and computers with some light theory, a lot of experimentation, and a touch of coding and simulations. 
The course covers a number of fundamental topics including: (1) introduction to electricity, (2) circuits with resistors, capacitors, and inductors, (3) filters and resonant circuits, (4) magnetism and motors, (5) amplifiers, (6) digital circuits including AND, NAND and NOR gates, (7) software tools such as MATLAB and PSPICE, and (8) power generation using solar panels. The last topic covers another “3C”, the climate change crisis. The course is highly hands-on and ends with a team project using all the above elements.
