Office:             ECE 201A

Office Hrs:      Tu/Th 8:30 – 9:30

 

Class Times:   MWF 8AM and 11AM   (CIE 101)

                        Th 10AM (ECE 125)

 

Lab TA                        Setare Amiri

Grader             Brandon Stevens

 

Note on class times:  You’re welcome to attend either the 8AM or 11AM section on any given MWF  (same instructor, same material, same room).  Alternating which room you attend is perfectly OK – so if you have an 8AM lab on Mondays, you can attend the 11AM section on Monday and the 8AM section on Wednesday and Friday.

 

If possible, please try to attend the 8AM section whenever it fits your schedule.  This will help us fit in CIE101 at 11AM, you’ll get a smaller section, a better education, and a longer lunch break.  Doesn’t cost you anything either.
