New Courses!

ECE 6990: Succeeding in the Graduate Environment (Fall 2020)

Professor El-Ghazaly is teaching a new seminar course for incoming first-year Ph.D. students across Engineering, Computer Science, and the Sciences. The course, called Succeeding in the Graduate Environment (ECE 6990), aims to guide students through their transition to graduate school, by equipping them with the crucial skills needed to “survive” academia. A special focus of the course will be on navigating issues particularly facing underrepresented minorities. Some of the topics include:

  • Managing the Advisor-Advisee Relationship
  • Campus Resources for Graduate Students
  • Reading and Writing Academic Papers
  • Giving Captivating Research Presentations
  • Applying for Graduate Funding
  • Getting Past the Occasional Slow Dip in Research
  • Pursuing a Career with the Ph.D.

Ph.D. Comic about Academia: Pro - you can work whenever you want, every day is a Saturday; Con - you work on Saturdays

 

ECE 6320: Applied Magnetism (Fall 2022)

Formerly listed as ECE 5970: Applied Magnetism (Fall 2019 and Fall 2020)

Professor El-Ghazaly is teaching a new course in ECE called Applied Magnetism (ECE 5970). The course will cover both theory and applications of magnetic materials. Some of the topics include:

  • Sources of Magnetism
  • Magnetic Anisotropy Energies
  • Types of Magnets:
    • Ferro-, Ferri-, and Antiferromagnets
    • Permanent Magnets
  • Spin Torque
  • Magnetic Resonance
  • Spin Caloritronics
