Courses of Instruction


MPT 203 Electric Circuit Analysis (4)

Study of electric circuits and networks with emphasis on industrial applications. Includes resistive circuits, first-order transients, and sinusoidal steady state. Study of the principles and analysis of polyphase distribution circuits. Corequisite: PHY 182, MTH 245. 3 Lec. 1 Lab.

278 Computer Architecture (3)

Principles of Von Neumann computer architecture. Data representation and computer arithmetic. Memory hierarchy. CPU structure and instruction sets. Assembly language programming to better understand and illustrate computer architecture concepts. Performance considerations and alternative computer architectures. Prerequisite: CSA 271 or equivalent. Cross-listed with CSA 278.

287 Digital Systems Design (4)

Topics include switching algebra and switching functions, logic design of combinational and sequential circuits using TTL, combinational logic design with MSI and LSI, busing, flip-flops, registers, counters, programmable logic devices, memory devices, register-level design, and microcomputer system organization. Students must show competency in the computer-aided design (CAD) and laboratory implementation of digital systems. 3 Lec. 2 Lab. Prerequisite: CSA 174 or equivalent.

MPT 303 Computer-Aided Experimentation (3)

In-depth study of theory and application of instrumentation and experimentation; components and concepts of computer-machine interface systems; design of computer-controlled experimentation for real-time measurement, monitoring and control of automated-industrial processes. Prerequisite: ECE 203, MME 211, STA 368. 2 Lec. 1 Lab. Cross-listed with MME 303.

Analysis and design of electronic circuits and subsystems. Frequency response and feedback in small signal amplifiers. Study of field effect transistors, unijunction transistors, silicon-controlled rectifiers, DIACs, TRIACs, and optoelectronic devices. Operational amplifier applications. Prerequisite: MME 203. 2 Lec. 1 Lab.

306 Signals and Systems (3)

Introductory course covering the principles of signals and systems. The course combines lectures, Matlab simulation laboratory exercises, and design projects to expose students to the theories and concepts of both continuous-time and discrete time forms of signals and systems, as well as applications of the theories and concepts in communication systems, control systems, and signal processing. Prerequisites: MTH 245, PHY 182/184, ECE 203.

436 Control of Dynamic Systems (3)

An in-depth study of the theory, design, and analysis of feedback control of dynamic systems. Integrate the problem-solving techniques and concepts of electric circuits and computer-aided experimentation into the design and construction of programmable-logic based control systems and its application in modern manufacturing systems. Design methodologies applied in lab exercises and short-term design projects. Prerequisite: ECE/MME 303. 2 Lec. 1 Lab. Cross-listed with MME 436.

MPC 448-449 Senior Design Project (2, 1-2)

Student teams, with varied academic backgrounds, conduct major open-ended research/design projects. Elements of the design process are considered as well as real-world constraints, such as economic and societal factors, marketability, ergonomics, safety, aesthetics, and ethics. 448: feasibility studies performed; 449: implementation, testing, and production of design. Nonmajors can register for 3-4 credits; (448) 2 credits, (449) 1-2 credits. Prerequisite: senior standing in student's major. Cross-listed with MME 448-449.
