The ECE 2500 Homepage

Welcome. This is your official information source for Introduction to Digital Logic, a freshman-level engineering course, offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, currently serving approximately 76 students. In this course we examine engineering methods for designing digital logic circuits such as what is commonly found in computers and other kinds of digital hardware. ECE 2500 is a required course for students majoring in electrical engineering, computer systems engineering and computer science. Your instructor this spring is Dr. Dean Johnson, an Associate Professor in the Department.


End of Semester

The Final Exam was Tuesday, April 24th. The average on the final was a 15.6/25 = 62%, lower than the first two exams. The top score was a 22/25, achieved by 4 students. Incorporting a 5% average increase from iClicker, the average on the Final was closer to a 67%. (Note: iClicker score needed for 3% full credit was lowered to just 48 points --> Beyond 48 gives more than 3% bonus.) The final exam consisted of 25 multiple choice questions coming primarily from Exams 1 and 2 and Quiz#10. The exam wass closed book/notes/calculator as before. No solutions to the final will be posted online.

Final exam scores are published on Elearning on Tuesday night. Semester lab scores (Labs 1-12) will be posted with 25% weighted average (its only 13% now) once the lab TAs do their submission. Final homework and iClicker scores are already posted. Grades will be made available on Elearning by next Tuesday of next week.

Thanks for participating in the class, and please continue your studies in the highly rewarding fields of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science. You can do it, and for some, it may require a second try. If you have to repeat the class, then please consider doing that -- the high salaries for engineers make it worth it. P.S. labs do not have to be repeated next time if you have a reasonably good lab score.
