This course introduces fundamentals of information science and technology in four parts: programming, intelligent machines and robotics, signal and systems, and electronics.



Read the chapters before class. I will not read the textbook to you during class. Rather, I will help you better understand certain materials in the textbook.
Class participation
You are required to participate actively in the classroom discussions.
You shall read your email at least once in any 12 hour period (including weekends and holidays), as I may send important announcements about this class.
