Zhenyu Zhang received the B.Eng. degree in electronics and information engineering from HuaZhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in 2002, the M. Eng. degree in electrical engineering from the National University of Singapore, Singapore, in 2005, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from École Polytechnique de Montréal, Montréal, in 2011.
After his Ph.D. graduation, Dr. Zhang worked as a hardware/RF engineer in multiple industries. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Alberta in September 2019. His specialties include wireless communication system design, analog and digital circuit design, EM simulation.
Differential amplifiers. Frequency response: active device high-frequency behaviour and circuit models; amplifier circuits and design. Feedback: concepts and structure; feedback topologies and amplifiers; open- and closed-loop response. Operational amplifiers: behaviour, circuit analysis and design. Requires payment of additional student instructional support fees. Refer to the Fees Payment Guide in the University Regulations and Information for Students section of the Calendar. Prerequisite: ECE 302 or E E 340. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 303 or E E 350.Fall Term 2020
The first of two design courses that must be taken in the same academic year. Students research and propose a design project to enhance or create an engineering system, process or device; they exercise creativity and make assumptions and decisions based on technical knowledge. This first course includes project definition, planning, and initial prototyping or design. Formal reports and presentation of the project proposal is required. Prerequisite: Completion of at least three years of study in the program or by consent of the Instructor. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 494 or E E 494.Fall Term 2020
The second of two design courses that must be taken in the same academic year, in which students implement an engineering system, process or device. Emphasis is placed on continued execution of the project plan developed in ECE 494. Prerequisite: ECE 494 in the preceding Fall Term. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 495 or E E 495Winter Term 2021
