Spring 2011ECE 331 - Digital Systems Design6 The Lab (ECE 332) Labs performed weekly. A total of eleven labs. Pre-lab must be completed prior to your lab session. If you fail to complete the pre-lab you will not be allowed to attend your lab session. Labs are administered by the TA's. ECE 332 must be taken in conjunction with ECE 331 or have been previously completed with a C or better.
Spring 2011ECE 331 - Digital Systems Design7 Homework Homework will be assigned on a weekly basis. Homework is due at the beginning of class on the date specified (generally Wednesday). No late submissions accepted. You are encouraged to discuss the homework problems with one another. However, you must submit your own work. Copying solutions is considered cheating. Homework is essential to the learning process!
Spring 2011ECE 331 - Digital Systems Design8 Exams Two exams during the semester. Third exam during finals week. All exams are closed-book. No cheat-sheets. No make-up exams. In the case of an emergency, see me. Notify me in advance (whenever possible) if a conflict or problem exists.
Spring 2011ECE 331 - Digital Systems Design9 Grading The final grade will be calculated as follows: Homework10% Exam #130% Exam #230% Exam #330% The grade for lab (ECE 332) is assigned separately. The letter grade assignment is described in the syllabus.
