Honors version / section



  • 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.

  • The summer version of ECE 212 is intended for students who have taken the spring version and earned below C. In addition...

    • Instructor permission is required (for the summer version).

    • Students do not need to be in Amherst to take ECE 212 during most of the summer. (See exception below for the lab component.)

    • Students do need to sign up for a secure testing service. In other words, you do not need to visit Marcus 8 to do secure testing. You will be able to do secure testing from anywhere you have internet access.

    • In order to complete the lab component of the course, students need to be in Amherst during one week in August just before the class ends (usually Wednesday to Wednesday).

    • Scores on labs and MATLAB exercises carry over from the spring version of the course, although students are free to redo and resubmit as desired.
