Signals and Systems (ENGIN 321)

The concepts of signals and systems arise in all areas of technology. This course provides an introduction to the analysis of linear systems in the time and frequency domain (e.g., what is the output of a system if we know the input and the impulse response function or the transfer function of the system, how to characterize a system by stimulating it and measuring the output signals, etc.). Students will learn about the input/output differential or difference equation, the convolution theorem and its applications, the continuous-time and discrete-time Fourier and Laplace transforms, and how to use Matlab in solving problems.

Probability and Random Processes (ENGIN 322)

An introduction to probabilistic description via the probability density function or distribution function and statistical description via the ensemble average, variance, etc. of random signals as applied to the analysis of linear systems. Key topics and concepts also include: conditional probability, statistical independence, correlation, sampling theory, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, stationary and ergodic processes, autocorrelation and cross-correlation functions, spectral density, and their interconnections.

Computer Architecture (ENGIN 446)

An introduction to computer architectures; analysis and design of computer subsystems including central processing units, memories and input/output subsystems; important concepts include datapaths, computer arithmetic, instruction cycles, pipelining, virtual and cache memories, direct memory access and controller design.
