Introduction to Electrical Engineering and Computer Science I

Massachusetts Institute of Technology via MIT OpenCourseWare

Overview

This course provides an integrated introduction to electrical engineering and computer science, taught using substantial laboratory experiments with mobile robots. Our primary goal is for you to learn to appreciate and use the fundamental design principles of modularity and abstraction in a variety of contexts from electrical engineering and computer science. Our second goal is to show you that making mathematical models of real systems can help in the design and analysis of those systems. Finally, we have the more typical goals of teaching exciting and important basic material from electrical engineering and computer science, including modern software engineering, linear systems analysis, electronic circuits, and decision-making. Course Format This course has been designed for independent study. It includes all of the materials you will need to understand the concepts covered in this subject. The materials in this course include: - Lecture videos from Spring 2011, taught by Prof. Dennis Freeman - Recitation videos, developed for OCW Scholar by teaching assistant Kendra Pugh - Course notes - Software and design labs - Homework assignments and additional exercises - Nano-quizzes and exams with solutions Content Development Leslie Kaelbling  Jacob White  Harold Abelson  Dennis Freeman Tomás Lozano-Pérez  Isaac Chuang

    As a student of electrical engineering, with a keen interest in the paradigm of computer science, it taught me how the amalgamation of these two subjects can be interesting, and useful at the same time. It also gave me clarity on object-oriented programming, imperative and functional coding, robotic analytics, and an overall technological aspect boost. It is a very good course for tech-geeks, and students like me who know things on the surface, but want to delve deep into the tangents and knots of this combination of electrical and computer science engineering

    The company asked you to do a product review because of your personal writing voice and your audience reach. So make your review unique by applying your own personal spin to it. For example, I am a homeschooling mom to one child. I look at everything educational through the lens of homeschooling. It's only natural for me to include that aspect in my review. An added bonus is that my readers, mostly homeschool moms, will also be seeing through that same lens. My review becomes more helpful to them when I put my personal spin on the review. It also makes my review stand out from those of any other bloggers who review the product.
