Students seeking the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering pursue one of two curricula—electrical engineering or computer engineering. Both curricula contain the fundamentals of electrical engineering and computer engineering; they differ in technical core requirements in order to suit different career objectives.
E E 363M E E 363M. Microwave and Radio Frequency Engineering. 3 Hours.
Design principles in microwave and radio frequency systems; transmission lines and waveguides; S-parameter representation; impedance matching; microwave network analysis; microwave devices and components; electromagnetic effects in high-speed/high-frequency applications. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Electrical Engineering 325 with a grade of at least C-.
M E 363M M E 363M. Energy Technology and Policy. 3 Hours.
An overview of energy technologies, fuels, environmental impacts and public policies. Subjects are interdisciplinary and include an introduction to quantitative concepts in energy, including the differences among fuels and energy technologies, energy policy levers, and the societal aspects of energy, such as culture, economics, war, and international affairs. Includes brief snippets of energy history, use of real-world examples, and looks forward into the future. Interactive and lecture-oriented around current events related to energy. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Mechanical Engineering 363M and 379M (Topic: Energy Technology and Policy) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Upper-division standing.
