This course primarily emphasizes "quantum mechanics" and "statistical physics" for engineers. Quantum mechanics includes a history of quantum physics, Schrödinger equation, a concept of a wavepacket, and N-degrees of freedom. Statistical physics covers a motivation, concept of ensemble average, Boltzmann distribution, Bose-Einstein distribution, Fermi-Dirac distribution, and Non-Equilibrium statistics.


  • The aims of this course are to make the student understand the principles and fundamental concepts of circuit analysis; to develop the student's familiarity and understanding in modeling and analyzing circuits through a variety of real-world examples. Another important aim is to extend the student's ability to apply system analysis to other branches of engineering.

  • This course is an introduction to continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems. The course covers Fourier series, Fourier transform, Laplace transform, and z-transform. Various types of systems with emphasis on linear time invariant system is studied.

  • This course covers introductory electromagnetic fields and waves. Static electric fields and static magnetic fields are discussed. Time-varying fields and Maxwell's equations are introduced. Waves and transmission lines are studied.

  • This course covers data structures, algorithms, JAVA for electron electronics engineering. We study object-oriented programming techniques and use programming language C, JAVA.

  • Experiments related to electronics are performed. Focus is made for both hands-on experience and design practice. (Prerequisite: EE201, EE304)


  • In this design experiment laboratory, knowledge learned in many other courses in this division are brought to bear on performing a project combining analog/digital and hardware/software. Hence, a chip stone design experiment will be performed, which establishes a synthesized application of undergraduate theory courses. For example, analog AM radio will be designed using various analog circuits, and voice recorder will be designed using Linux based embedded system.

  • This course covers introductory material for semiconductor physics and semiconductor device physics. The course material starts from a discussion of crystal structure and progresses up to p-n junction. More specifically, the course covers the following topics: crystal structure of solids, principles of quantum mechanics, Schrödinger wave equation, energy band theory, statistical mechanics, carriers in semiconductors, extrinsic semiconductor-donors and acceptors, carrier drift, carrier diffusion, carrier generation and recombination, ambipolar transport equation, excess carrier lifetime, p-n junction - equilibrium, p-n junction & applications.

  • This course is an introduction to electronic circuits and the analysis and design of transistor amplifiers. First, the course extensively explains the basic operation principles of diodes, BJTs, and MOSFETs derived from physical structures and gives a concept of equivalent device models. Then, we will study the design and analysis of basic BJT and FET amplifiers and differential and multi-stage amplifiers. (Prerequisite: EE201)

  • In this course, we study in depth how the basic semiconductor devices operate. Various semiconductor devices are examined including a pn junction diode, a bipolar junction transistor (BJT), and two-field effect transistors (MOSFET, JFET). This course will also cover non-ideal effects in the real semiconductor devices.

  • Technology for Silicon Semiconductor IC (Integrated Circuit) chip which is the basis of modern electronic systems, will be covered, focusing on its historical background, structures of modern semiconductor devices, and fabrication processes. Current and future trends of semiconductor IC technology will also be discussed.
    (Prerequisite: EE211, EE362)

  • This course will teach students the fundamental principles and concepts for an electric power system with an emphasis on renewable energy technologies that are important from the perspectives of electrical engineering.
