Almost every ECE student had Dr. Briggs for ECE 3, so you know how is he's teaching style, he explains everything too well, and he make sure that everyone understands the material but at the end, the class material is very very easy.
You can end up in this class in two different routes 1) Either you attend all the lectures, and try to do works done in lab session and you won't have any outside work to do in this class. 2) Or you just assume its a easy class, fall behind in lab, take so much of outside class time to work on labs and projects and fall behind in rest of your classes.
Other than that 40% of this class depends on 4 super easy lab and two time consuming mini project in DA class, and 60% that consist of a big project in DB class.

This is a great class for senior design. The workload consists of 4 labs, 2 mini-projects, and 1 project proposal for EE 113DB.

You get one week for each lab and two weeks for each mini-project. If you don't fool around in class and focus completing the labs, you'll be able to complete the labs/projects in class. So you pretty much get zero homework and no work outside class if you put in the effort during class.

The only problem I found with classmates struggling is that they did not have a strong math background. If you understand periodic wave signals and sampling, then this class is s breeze.

Dec. 4, 2021

This is one of the most useless and terribly organized classes I've ever taken. If you are looking for project experience in signal processing, DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS! This class is really an embedded system capstone because for every single project you are implementing given formulas in C on a buggy microcontroller that can't handle double-precision operations. The Syllabus claimed a midterm quiz on week 9 which turned out to be at week 6, which he told us two days before. The projects are completely bs and very poorly organized. No lab manual and you have to dig through long TA videos just trying to set the basic things up. Imaging for a NN project on vowal recognition, you use MATLAB to automatically generate your NN but have to record 40 or so training samples by yourself, and just have to hope that your voice sounds like the prof's because that's the test sample. That's 113DA for ya. Such a terrible class
