Notes

  • Starting in Fall 2015, the focus of ENGIN 112 (Intro. to Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering) is no longer digital design. Instead, ECE 221 is offered as the prerequisite for ECE 232 (Hardware Organization & Design).

  • To enroll in the summer version of ECE 221, students will need the instructor's permission.

  • The summer version of ECE 221 is online, so students do not need to be in Amherst to take this class.

  • Students who take ECE 221 during the first summer session may take ECE 232 during the second summer session.

  • Courses offered in the winter and summer terms are administered by CPE (Continuing and Professional Education), which means there is a fee to enroll. For more information, go to the CPE website.
