EE302 - Introduction to Electrical Engineering
 
The first semester of electronic courses that provides cadets with the opportunity to solve simple and complex electronic laboratories and projects, like LRC circuits and a small, line-following robot. Several laboratories have incorporated the use of simulation tools, such as OrCAD PSpice in the design of their solutions.
 
EE362 - Introduction to Electronics
 
The second semester of electronic courses that provides cadets with the opportunity to solve simple and complex electronic laboratories and projects, like a multi-stage audio amplifier. Several laboratories have incorporated the use of simulation tools, such as OrCAD PSpice in the design of their solutions.
 
EE401 - Electronic System Design I
 
This is the first semester of the Senior Capstone Design that provides cadets with the opportunity to solve real-world projects, often for real customers. Several cadet projects have incorporated the use of simulation tools to validate or demonstrate characteristics of a network system. Small design teams will design, build and test the solution to real problems, often using tools such as OrCAD PSpice in the design of their solutions.
 
XE402 - Integrative System Design
 
This is the second semester of the Senior Capstone Design that continues to provide cadets with the opportunity to solve real- world projects, often for real customers. Several cadet projects have incorporated the use of simulation tools to validate or demonstrate characteristics of a network system. Small design teams will design, build and test the solution to real problems, often using tools such as OrCAD PSpice in the design of their solutions.
 
EE462 - Electronics Design
 
The third semester of electronic courses that provides cadets with the opportunity to solve simple and complex electronic laboratories and projects, like a karaoke machine. Several laboratories have incorporated the use of simulation tools, such as OrCAD PSpice in the design of their solutions.
 
EE477 - Communications Systems
 
This course in analog communication provides cadets with the opportunity to solve simple and complex electronic laboratories and projects, like a transceiver. Several laboratories have incorporated the use of simulation tools, such as OrCAD PSpice in the design of their solutions.
 
EE486 - Solid State Electronics
 
This course in electroncis provides cadets with the opportunity to solve simple and complex electronic laboratories, like a ring oscillator. Laboratories also stress the use of simulation software to obtain a structure profile and simulate device electrical characteristics of CMOS circuits.
