What is Different About ECE426? Almost Everything! ECE426 is likely to be quite different from other courses that you have taken. Note that there are no exams, so that there is no common body of material that all students must learn. Instead you will work on various projects, largely of your own choosing, subject to some general requirements. Some new material will be presented in lectures, and there will be assigned homework problems. But even with homework, you will have a choice of problems (about 30 problems will be handed out of which you need to solve and hand in 15). Lectures and HW have the additional function of suggesting possible project topics. There are four projects with very different weight. The first project is only 10%, intended to let you get acquainted with the course, and many project suggestions will be given for this project. The last project is 12%, and often students can and do elect the option of giving the project orally (in a session with instructors and some fellow students) rather than write a report. While there is never a great time to have a major project due, the third project is the largest (40%), and is thus due well before the end of the term because the very end of the spring term is probably the most busy time of all. This third project should be thought of as the main CDE project for the course, and should be a solid design project. Historically, well prior to the CED requirements, ECE426 has been a “real engineering”
