PHYS 302 - Physical Computing

(4cr) In this course students will learn how to build digital devices to sense and interact with the world around them. Such devices are a ubiquitous part of the built environment and increasingly mediate humankind’s interactions and relationships with both the built and the natural environments. Topics will include electric circuits, passive and active electronic components, microcontroller programming, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion, and wired and wireless serial communication. At the end of the semester students will work in groups to fabricate and demonstrate physical computers of their own design. Prerequisites: Any 4-credit Core Curriculum science class, or Permission of Instructor.
