Teaching

3D1 Microprocessor Systems I is a one-semester module taken by third year Electronic, Electronic/Computer and Computer Engineering students providing an introduction to the basic structure, properties and operation of microprocessor systems.



2E10 Engineering Design IV is a one-semester module taken by second year Engineering students involving electronic system design of a computer controlled autonomous vehicle with motor driven wheels and position sensors.



CS1026 Digital Logic Design II is a one-semester module taken by first year Integrated Computer Science students that focuses on boolean logic, logic gates, synchronous finite state machines and datapath controller design.

3071 Compiler Design is a one-semester module taken by third year Integrated Computer Science, Computer Science & Language and Computer Science & Business students studying tools designed for writers of compilers and interpreters which are also useful for many applications other than compilers. The course is relevant for any application that looks for patterns in its input or has an input or command language.
