My Courses

CET4973 | Introduction to Artificial Intelligence | Fall 2019

CET4973 | Introduction to Artificial Intelligence | Fall 2019

Introduction to basic methods of Artificial Intelligence (AI) such as searching, knowledge representation, problem-solving and learning. Through discussions, small projects and examples, students learn what AI is, some of the major developments in the field, promising directions and the techniques for making computers exhibit intelligent behavior. Students make use of available development tools and explore some areas of application such as recommender systems, natural language processing, robotics, and machine learning.

EMT1111 | Spring 2019 | Dr. Mendoza

EMT1111 | Spring 2019 | Dr. Mendoza

This course introduces the foundations of problem-solving and computer programming as it is applied to computer engineering technology. It provides a basic understanding of programming techniques, logic, and number systems through hands-on laboratory exercises in a modern programming language. Students will learn Python to understand basic programming concepts a. The course encourages students to cooperate with others and use their imagination, creativity, and problem-solving.

EMT2370 | Summer 2019 | Dr. Mendoza

EMT 2370: Computer Hardware Systems Computer hardware systems, along with several software concepts, are studied to understand the function and relationship of the CPU, memory, and peripheral equipment. Course material is chosen for relevance to industry certification exams such as A+. The peripheral equipment includes monitors, disk drives, scanners, and printers. During laboratory exercises, computer systems, with monitor and operating system, are provided for analysis by students working in teams. However, as an option, each student can build, configure, analyze and troubleshoot his or her own IBM PC (or compatible) computer.

CET4773 | Spring 2019

CET4773 | Spring 2019

Technologies, protocols, and techniques used to connect a computer network with other networks through the use of gateways that provide a common method of routing information packets between the networks. Internetworking technology allows computing devices to other internal and external devices, components or systems. Topics include Local Area Networks (LAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN) implementation, wireless networks implementation, network security, advanced switching and routing configuration, advanced TCP/IP configuration, and network management. In particular, this semester will focus on the content required to obtain the CCENT/CCNA ICND1 certification from CISCO. NOTE: This course was formerly known as Microcomputer Interfacing.

City Tech’s Autonomous Vehicles Race (City Tech’s AV Race)

City Tech’s Autonomous Vehicles Race (City Tech’s AV Race)

CityTech Autonomous Vehicles Race is a students’ research project (lead by Fahim, Mubtasim & Suleyman). Based on Donkey® Car, students compete on races AV Races. Anybody can join to the competition at the end of each semester. The main goal of this is to understand the AV requirements and make a simpler & cheaper version of donkey platform, that can be available for students.

The Tech Interview Corner

The Tech Interview Corner

The interviews for job positions in the Tech industry (Tech Interviews) are different than most job interviews. A Tech Interview is a specialized and rigorous process that not just tests your coding or technical skills, but also your problem-solving abilities, communications and teamwork skills, and personality. The interviewing process starts with phone interviews (or teleconferences) with remote coding challenges. The next stage consists of full days of on-site interviews where you solve problems in a whiteboard. The interviewing process for a tech job might be intimidating. However, it is easier when you are well-prepared and know what to expect. This little corner in the cyberspace aims to provide some guidance for you to ace the Tech Interview. Please leave us your comments and post your questions.
