About the Course:

ECE 210 is the first mathematically oriented course in the electrical and computer engineering curricula. The course begins by building on the circuit analysis concepts you learned in ECE 110 and then progresses into the more abstract world of Fourier and Laplace transforms. Much of what we will do will rely on your background in calculus. Our goal will be to apply mathematical tools to the analysis and design of signal processing systems, culminating in a thorough understanding of an AM radio receiver and the ability to design simple filters. ECE 210 deals with the processing of continuous-time, or analog signals. The follow-on course, ECE 310, covers the processing of sampled, or digital signals. ECE 211 is the first half of ECE 210. Students in ECE 211 should attend lectures approximately through Monday, October 20 (Chapters 1 through 6 in the course textbook).


Exams will be combined for all sections of ECE 210 and 211. ECE 210 students will take three evening tests and a final exam. ECE 211 students will take just the first two tests. The second test will serve as the final exam for ECE 211 students. Times for the tests are 8:45-10 p.m., Thursday, September 28, Thursday, October 26 and Thursday, November 30. To compensate for the evening tests, class will be canceled on the next day after each test. The final for ECE 210 is going to be announced later in the semester.

Absences from Hour Exams:

If you miss an hour exam due to illness, injury, family emergency or other reasons beyond your control, you will be asked to provide your professor with an absence letter from the Student Assistance Center in the Office of the Dean of Students. Documentation which validates the absence is required by the Dean's Office to provide the absence letter. The absence letter will serve to verify the reason for your absence from the exam. Your ECE 210 professor will then take an appropriate action that may include offering an oral examination or written examination.

Written assignments will be made weekly on the link "Homework Assignments and Homework/Exam Solutions" and will be due on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. in the homework boxes located on the northwest corner of the 3rd floor of ECEB, next to the service elevator. The lowest homework mark will be dropped for 211 students and the lowest two homework marks will be dropped for 210 students. You can check your homework marks on Illinois Compass 2g.

Please visit the "Homework Assignments and Homework/Exam Solutions" link for information about the homework format and policy.

Labs (only ECE 210 students):

Five bi-weekly laboratory assignments will be given, beginning on September 27thMore information about the labs on the following link: Lab Syllabus and Assignments
