EEC 1: Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engineering
EEC 1 is a 1-unit project-based course for first-year students. In their first quarter at UC Davis, students in this class are introduced to a range of topics within Electrical and Computer Engineering including embedded systems, physical electronics, circuits, communications, signal processing and systems design. As part of the course, they complete a project that requires system-level understanding about the interrelation of these different fields within ECE to create an audio spectrum analyzer that has lights that blink in response to the frequency and volume of the sounds that are played for it. This course aims to give our incoming first-year students an introduction to the variety of fields, projects and knowledge they will be involved with during their time at UC Davis.
