In the Electrical and Computer Engineering major (ECET) at the Middlesex County Academy, we touch on a variety of topics ranging from basic computer programming to advanced electrical circuits.
- Freshman Year: Boolean logic, basic C++ programming, and DC Circuit Analysis.
- Sophomore Year: Integrated Circuit Logic Families, Finite State Machines, Latches and Flip-Flops, Memory, Op-Amps, Microcontrollers
- Junior Year: Object Oriented C++, AC Circuit Analysis, Electronic and Digital Communication Systems
- Senior Year: Senior Project
While each year builds on previous topics, eventually culminating in the final senior project, there is no assumption of prior knowledge upon entering the class in ninth grade. For example, students aren’t expected to already know how to program or analyze circuits.
