My Courses

EMT 1150 Electrical Circuits – Fall 2018

EMT 1150 Electrical Circuits – Fall 2018

Sections: D372-LEC & D376-LEC Introduction to the basic principles of direct and alternating current circuits. Topics include linear and nonlinear passive components, transient response and phase relationships. Laboratory work is performed both in school and at home (using student-purchased kits). The use of the multi-meter, oscilloscope and frequency generator is introduced; computers are used for problem-solving.

CET 4711 – Computer Controlled System Design

CET 4711 – Computer Controlled System Design

Modern design principles and methodologies. Software tools for system design including computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering. Students carry out the conceptual design of a complete device or system by integrating hardware and software sub-systems.

City Tech Super HERO

City Tech Super HERO

Meet the City Tech Super HERO. She was born in 1980 as Heathkit Educational Robot (HERO). For the next 15 years she helped countless number of students in colleges and universities across the country learn about Computer and Robotics Technology. Then she went into hibernation. Fast forward to 2017… City Tech Women Engineers Club members have taken the initiative to revive HERO, give her a new life and new features, with the help of modern computer hardware and software technology. Her capabilities will be enhanced with the implementation of Assistive Technology to enable her to help people with disabilities. She will be a true Super HERO!
