My Courses

Electronics

Electronics

Characteristics and Applications of semiconductor elements such as diodes, bipolar junction transistors and field effect transistors are covered. Applications include dc power supplies, voltage regulators, small signal amplifiers (single and multi-stage), operational amplifiers, negative feedback, and frequency response.

EET 3120 Sensors and Instruments

EET 3120 Sensors and Instruments

An introduction to the world of electrical and optical sensors with applications in bioengineering, environmental remote sensing fields and many more. The topics cover description of sensor performance, temperature sensors, light sensors, force sensors, displacement sensors, motion sensors, environmental sensors, sound sensors, chemical sensors, sensor interfacing, instrumentation techniques and switching mechanisms. The lab component of this course introduced sensors control using NI LabView software and NI ELVIS hardware

Remote Sensing

Remote Sensing

Highlights the physical and mathematical principles underlying remote sensing techniques, covering the radiative transfer equation,atmospheric sounding techniques, interferometric and lidar systems, and an introduction to image processing. The lab component introduces remote sensing software HYDRA, and MATLAB, used for image display and data analysis.

TCET 4140 Telecommunications Network Management

TCET 4140 Telecommunications Network Management

This course deals with the technical management of a telecommunication network, personnel tasks, staffing patterns suitable to diverse telecommunications firms and users, with an overview of the issues facing the network manager. Included are studies of cost and trade-offs involved in the design and operation of a telecommunications network. Reliability, MTBF, RFP, and MTTR life cycle are analyzed. Traffic patterns and the study of equipment/manpower balance considerations are covered.

Transmission Systems

Transmission Systems

Introduction to the analysis of microwave communications and systems. Transmission line theory, the Smith chart and mathematical analysis are incorporated. Various transmission media such as twowire, twisted telephone wires, coaxial cable, waveguides, fiber and satellite are studied. Study of microwave components, Tee connectors, attenuators, slotted lines and cavities are included. Antenna design and radio-wave propagation are also covered (introduced). Concludes with a study of microwave applications and systems. Prerequisite: EET 2140; Pre- or corequisite: MAT 1475
