    Courses Enhanced

    This project incorporates hands-on laboratory experience into three undergraduate, electrical engineering courses offered in the junior and senior year. In addition, a dedicated laboratory course is being enhanced through the adaptation of experiments originally developed at the University of South Florida. The links below access the laboratory experiments developed for the courses (note that this is a work in progress).

    EE 174: Intro to Communication Systems

  • Objectives: To provide the theoretical foundation necessary to understand modern communication systems and to introduce several modes of communications.
  • Labs

    EE 186: Telecommunications Lab

  • Objectives: To learn to characterize fundamental RF hardware components both as subsystems and as an integrated system. To learn and apply wireless communication measurement techniques for both analog and digital systems.
  • Labs

    EE 273: Digital Communications

  • Objectives: To develop techniques for the analysis of modern communications systems in the presence of noise. To investigate new trends in telecommunications.
  • Labs

    EE 278: Wireless Communication Systems

  • Objectives: To provide the theoretical foundation needed to understand and analyze modern wireless communication systems.
  • Labs
