courses taught

  • ECEN 1100 - Exploring ECE
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
    Introduces students to areas of emphasis with the ECE department through seminars presented by faculty and outside speakers. Emphasizes career opportunities, professional ethics and practices, history of the profession, and resources for academic success. Several sessions promote team building and problem solving, and provide opportunities for first year students to meet their classmates.
  • ECEN 3400 - Electromagnetic Fields and Waves
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Fall 2020
    Electromagnetic fields are covered at an introductory level, starting with electrostatics and continuing with DC current, magnetostatics, time-varying magnetic fields, waves on transmission lines, Maxwell's equations and the basics of plane waves. The use of fields in inductors, capacitors, resistors, transformers, and energy and power concepts are studied.
  • ECEN 3410 - Electromagnetic Waves and Transmission
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2024
    Covers reflected and transmitted plane waves in layered media, Poynting's theorem of electromagnetic power, two-conductor transmission line theory and practice, Smith chart usage and impedance matching, waveguides, and elements of antenna theory.
  • ECEN 5004 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021
    Examines a special topic in Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours.
  • ECEN 5104 - Computer-Aided Microwave Circuit Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
    Emphasizes the design of strip-line and microstrip circuits, using a CAD package. Discusses design of impedance transformers, amplifiers, switches, phase-shifters, etc. Assignments include design of typical circuits and their analysis using a microwave circuit analysis program. Laboratory includes measurements using a network analyzer facility on a typical circuit designed and fabricated by students.
  • ECEN 5134 - Electromagnetic Radiation and Antennas
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Covers elementary sources and antennas, cylindrical wire antennas, loop antennas, radiation patterns and antenna gain, aperture sources such as horns and dishes, specialized antennas such as microstrip patches, linear and circular arrays, mutual coupling and ground effects, ray and numerical formulations, transmission formulas, and antenna applications.
  • ECEN 5154 - Computational Electromagnetics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Fall 2022
    Provides a computational study of microwave circuits and antennas, using finite-difference, finite-element, and moment methods. Requires students to develop algorithms, write and execute programs, and prepare reports analyzing results. Circuits include waveguides, microstrip lines, and center-fed dipole antennas.
  • ECEN 6950 - Master's Thesis
