Students in Ohio University’s McClure School of Information and Telecommunication Systems take ITS 3110, titled Technical Foundations for Communication. It’s also ITERA’s 2016 Innovative Course. According to the university catalog, They’ll learn:
“Foundational experience in electronics, optics, and physics for students in telecommunications. Theory aspects include resistance, Ohm’s law, reactance, filters, AC and DC power, analog and signals, propagation, digital logic, and signal processing. Laboratory aspects include circuit components, analog and digital circuit construction and operation, use of test equipment, microprocessor and DSP implementation, and safety practices. Relevance to telecommunications industry components will be stressed.“
Professor John Hoag is the course architect and primary instructor.
