ECE 257B: Course Information

UCSD, Dinesh Bharadia, Winter Quarter 2022

We will be using a class Piazza forum to conduct all discussions about course materials, answer questions about homework and post announcements outside of the scheduled lectures and office hours. Please sign up at


Venue: Lecture: TueThu 5:00-6:20pm on https:ucsd.zoom.usj/93400668620 Zoom


This year, we are planning to have a flipped class format where the students are required to watch the pre-recorded video prior to the real-time lecture. This allows the student to understand the concepts better and use the real-time lecture to clarify the doubts.
There will be a reading quiz posted before every lecture. Each student should subscribe for a lecture to scribe. The deadline for the scribe is one week after the lecture is held.
