Welcome to Electrical and Computer Engineering New Student Seminar!
This class gives students a quick tour through the exciting world of Electrical and Computer
Engineering. If you are looking for a major or would simply like to learn a little more
about emerging technology, you are encouraged to take this class!
The class will be a fast paced and entertaining look at the major topics
within Electrical and Computer Engineering. The class is 0.5 credits and
graded pass/fail. This semester we will be using a brand new, exciting
e-textbook designed specifically
for this class called Practically Magic - A Guide to Electrical and Computer Engineering. There will be no tests and the
grading criteria will be based on lecture attendance, reading, and
completion of 10 animated learning activities found within the e-textbook.
These projects are meant to be fun, last less than an hour, and can be
completed anywhere you can read your e-textbook. To see what topics we
will cover and to preview the activities,
