    Not only is technology ever
 changing but it is getting cheaper
           and cheaper

Example
 On 12/13/95 I purchased for Christmas a
  desktop computer with P-75 processor for
  $1499.99 and a HP660 DeskJet printer for
  $379.00. Total of $1,878
 Today a computer 10x faster with 100x
  more memory and a better printer can be
  purchased for around $300
Some laptop prices - November 2010
More laptop prices – November 2010
        Engr 1201 vs. Engr 1202
 Engr 1202 is specific to electrical and computer engineer
 Engr 1202 will only deal with electrical and computer
  engineering topics
 There is no textbook with Engr 1202 ECE – all necessary
  information will be provided in class – Also available at
  my web site, coefs.uncc.edu/jahudak/
 Engr 1202 still employs the team concept
 Engr 1202 still requires a verbal presentation
 Engr 1202 still requires a written final report
 Engr 1202 E01 also has a Recitation / Problem Session
  one day a week taught by the ECE Department
  Chairman

    comics
Dilbert Characters     Alice

                     Dogbert


                      Pointed

                  Class Structure
   First several weeks of lectures will prepare class for work
    on the project
   Class will be broken up into teams
   Teams will work on a project in the ECE Microelectronics
    clean room – Cameron Room 201
   Teams will need to find a time to meet in the clean room
    - available meeting times will be provided
   Once work starts in the clean room, we will meet only
    once per week for lectures
   Later in the semester as time permits we will return to
    two lectures a week.
   Recitation / Problem Session will meet each week unless
    canceled
Assignment – Due before next class
   Go to the Engr 1202 ECE web site,
    coefs.uncc.edu/jahudak/
   Find the Engr 1202 ECE section
   Find the lecture notes and homework sections
   E-mail John at jahudak@uncc.edu with just the
    title of HW #10
   Also tell me in 1-2 paragraphs why you are
    interested in getting a degree in engineering.
   Use only your UNC-Charlotte e-mail account, no
    personal e-mail accounts
