* Signals and Systems and Embedded Microcontrollers
Pre/Corequisite: Signals and Systems and Embedded Microcontrollers
These items were assigned as pre or co-requisities to the course with a goal that students have an idea of the frequency domain and the basics of programming a microcontroller. This would allow a junior to take this course. In schools that include microcontroller programming earlier in the curriculum, students may be equipped to take this course in their second year.
