The period of the demise of the Kingdom of Judah at the end of the sixth
century B.C.E., the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians, the exile of
the elite to Babylon, and the reshaping of the territory of the new province
of Judah, culminating at the end of the century with the first return of
exiles – all have been subjects of intense scrutiny in modern scholarship.
This course takes into account the biblical textual evidence, the results
of archaeological research, and the reports of the Babylonian and Egyptian
This course represents a real hands-on laboratory course in introductory electronics. In it, you will learn how to use the instruments every electrical engineer needs to know: the oscilloscope, function generator and multi-meter. You will use these instruments running on your computer to measure voltages from circuits you will build from actual electrical components with measurement systems provided by National Instruments, Inc. Students will be required to purchase hardware, software and electrical parts.
Handheld systems, such as smartphones and tablets are now the most
common way for people to access and interact with computing services. The demand for application
development skills is therefore growing at a breathtaking pace. These skills, however, are multi-‐
faceted, requiring students to master computer science and engineering principles, to learn the
details of specific mobile application platforms, and to design artistic and engaging user interfaces
that respond to how, where and why handheld applications are used.
