ECG 190 - ELECTRICAL AN COMPUTER ENGINEERING FRESHMAN DESIGN CATALOG DATA This course will introduce students to safety, ethics, and various branches of electrical and computer engineering through 1 hour weekly lectures by various professors and practitioners. Students will additionally be introduced to equipment usage and design principles in electrical and or computer engineering through the design (modification), construction, and testing of an electrical or computer system. TEXTBOOK Lecture material will be provided weekly through handouts or provided from the website COURSE OBJECTIVES to familiarize the students with basic concepts of electrical devices, charge, circuits, voltage and current, power and energy to introduce the students to the various branches and disciplines of electrical and computer engineering to demonstrate to the students the procedure and importance of project management to develop the students' ability to conduct circuit analysis using SPICE and Matlab to instill into the student the proper respect and habits of safety and ethics PREREQUISITE BY TOPIC None TOPICS Introduction, general requirements, safety, and a discussion of what is engineering.
