Dear Faculty and Students,

The ECE department is offering several special topics courses in Fall 2021. We are happy to work with students outside ECE to determine if you would be prepared. Please email the instructors with questions.

For ECE undergraduates: all courses will count as ECE Technical Electives with a Request for Modification of Major Form

ECE 491 – Special Topics

Power Systems Analysis
CRN: 42804 (3), 42805 (4), MW 3:00-4:15
Instructor: Lina He, lhe@uic.edu
Prerequisites: ECE 225 or 210 (non ECE Students)
     This course will cover the important topics including the introduction of electrical power systems, principles and modeling of electrical power systems, power flow analysis, economic dispatch and fault analysis. It is intended to familiarize students with the fundamental knowledge of power systems and provide them the prerequisite skills to carry out engineering analysis.

Power Converter Modeling Analysis and Control
CRN: 45537 (3), 45538 (4), TR 3:30-4:45
Instructor: Mohammed Shadmand, shadmand@uic.edu
Prerequisites: C or better in ECE 342
     This course encompasses dynamic modeling of power-electronic switching converters leading subsequently to the analysis and control design from stability and performance standpoints. Several practical examples will be provided to implement such methodologies for real-world applications.

Digital Speech Processing
CRN: 45436 (3), 45437 (4), MW 4:30-5:45
Instructor: A. Enis Cetin, aecyy@uic.edu
Prerequisites: ECE 317 or equivalent and basic computer programming skills. 
     This is an introductory course on speech processing. The entire field of digital signal processing was actually started by processing speech signals.  FFT and Cepstrum were developed as tools in speech data processing. The course covers both the theory and practical aspects of speech processing.

 
ECE 594 Special Topics

Convex Optimization
CRN: 34717, (4) MW 4:30-5:45
Instructor: Shuo Han, hanshuo@uic.edu
Prerequisites: Good knowledge of linear algebra (e.g., as in ECE 550 or ECE 531). Exposure to probability (e.g., ECE 341). Familiarity with MATLAB. 
     This course covers three main aspects of convex optimization: theory, algorithms, and applications (e.g., machine learning, signal/image processing, controls). The student will learn to be able to recognize convexity and use convex optimization to model and solve problems that arise   in engineering applications. Students will also gain a basic understanding of how convex optimization problems are solved algorithmically so as to determine whether a given problem can be solved using off- the-shelf solvers.

High Performance IC’s/Systems
CRN: 36706, TR 2:00-3:15
Instructor: Inna Partin Vaisband,  vaisband@uic.edu
Prerequisites: ECE 340 and ECE 467. ECE 467 can be waived with consent of the instructor.  
     In this course, you will gain the important insight into design challenges and state-of-the-art solutions across multiple levels of design abstraction. You will learn to analyze, model, and design VLSI systems at transistor, circuit, and system levels. 

Foundations of Secure and Private Computing 
CRN: 44943, MWF, 2:00-2:50
Instructor: Hulya Seferoglu, hulya@uic.edu 
Pre-requisites: ECE 341 (or equivalent)
     This course provides a foundational view of the principles and algorithms for enabling secure and private computing, in particular for applications in machine learning, federated learning, and blockchains.
