Courses


Fall 2022: ENGR-E 399/599 Deep Learning Architecture and Hardware Acceleration
Lecture: MW 11:30am-12:45pm
Facility: IF 4012


This course is a graduate-level course in computer architecture with special topics in hardware acceleration for machine learning. Advanced undergraduates who have fulfilled the prerequisites are welcome to enroll. This course provides an essential background in the training and inference of deep neural networks (DNNs), deep learning frameworks, and hardware accelerators. This course surveys the recent trends that reduce the computation, storage, and communication cost of DNNs via co-optimization of algorithms and hardware.

Students are expected to read, present, and interact with research papers, and complete three course projects and one final take-home exam. Prerequisites include introductory Computer Organization and Digital Logical Design.

Course materials, labs, and readings are available through Canvas.

Fall 2021: ENGR-E 311 Circuits and Digital Systems
Lecture: MW 1:10pm-2:25pm
Lab: F 1:45pm-2:35pm
Facility: GY 4068


This course is an introduction to circuits and linear analysis. Topics include voltage and current sources, Kirchhoff's laws, Ohm's law, Nodal and Mesh analysis, Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits, operational amplifiers, inductors and capacitors, frequency analysis of first-order and second-order systems, simple filter designs, and power dissipation calculations.

Students will learn topics by listening to lectures and participating in discussions and from reading the textbook and supplementary readings. A series of hands-on laboratory exercises and a significant team-oriented design project will provide students with an opportunity to apply and explore the material.
