Free MIT course on Circuits and Electronics
 
Hi everyone. You might be interested in this: https://6002x.mitx.mit.edu/

"6.002x (Circuits and Electronics) is an experimental on-line adaptation of MITís first undergraduate analog design course: 6.002. This course will run, free of charge, for students worldwide from March 5, 2012 through June 8, 2012."

Hope this will be useful to you.

Best regards,

PEMO

Is this a phishing expedition?

This is legit, hey I even taught a couple of classes.

john curl 18th February 2012 01:58 AM

Looks good.

Thank you Scott et al.
No offence intended, to MIT or PEMO, but in these times of cyber mimicry and ensueing nasties the IT guys at MIT seem more than a bit naive. Most web marshal appliance rules that I know of would block a domain name like that and it certainly rang my alarm bells. And still does.

MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) is offering this course for free. If you just follow the link, it will take you to the page where you can register for it. I have no interest in this except letting all of you know that this is a wonderful opportunity to learn or re affirm your electronic knowledge.

Looking at the resumes of the three professors, they all seem to be computer scientists, not EE scientists.
I wonder why that is. Has MIT run out of EE professors to teach the EE courses ?

jcx 20th February 2012 09:13 PM

given what the leading edge of academic analog design theory looks like you're much better off with any Prof that has enthusiasm for, experience in undergrad teaching

Computer Science grew up inside the EE dept – despite the modern view of programming being hardware independent the hardware had to be invented, evolved together with the programming techniques

Sussman’s CV is pretty strong on systems modeling work, including using programming as mental discipline for teaching systems modeling

much of 6.002 is linear systems theory – modeling linear systems is pretty much a cross-curricular course for most engineering and many science programs, not just Analog EE




I was in one of 4 sections of a intro linear systems course, our section was taught by a new Prof with impressive theory publications – the 15 randomly assigned undergrads in our section “mode” average was one letter grade less than the other sections – I kinda suspect the monotone drone of the Prof reading the book to us in class didn’t help

This is pretty bold. There is a big difference between posting all the course materials and actually assigning homework and giving tests! I will be curious to see how many start the course and how many finish.
