Some courses offered to ECE students in the summer semester include 200 level physics classes such as introduction to electric and electronic circuits, which discusses the basic principles of circuit analysis, and 400 level senior thesis classes for students to finish their final research projects. ECE also offers 500 level thesis research classes for students to finalize their dissertations, states Electrical Computer Engineering of Illinois.
ECE offers students the opportunity to take 300 level classes such as Digital Signal Processing, which teaches students discrete time systems with an emphasis on casual systems. These students must also partake in a lab class that follows to ensure the knowledge is learned in a hands-on manner as well. This class requires the student to take Analog signal processing beforehand, as 300 level classes of this sort always require prerequisites in the 200 level class before it. This class is offered in the summer for students who may not have the flexibility to take a lab class during the regular semester and need the course to graduate.
For students working on receiving their masters degree from ECE, the school offers three 500 level classes from a Masters Project class to the Individual study, where a student works under an internship furthering his education outside of the classroom, according to Electrical Computer Engineering of Illinois.
