Teaching

Dr Rishad currently teaches half of the following course to stage 2 EEE BEng/MEng students in semester 1:

EEE2007: Computer Systems and Microprocessors

In his part of the course, he brings together various hardware and software aspects -- which he believes is the way forward for preparing current and future generations of electronic systems engineers and researchers. The course is co-taught (and led) by Dr. Nick Coleman.

He also leads the Buggy project offered to Stage 2 EEE BEng/MEng students in semester 2:

EEE2008: Project and Professional Issues

In this course, students are taught to use a holistic systems design project (Buggy: an automatic electrical automobile system) and learn entrepreneurial skills of creating novel business niche based on their innovations/works. 

Additionally, Dr Shafik leads the following new module offered to MSc Microelectronics: Systems and Devices, semester 1:

EEE8126: Embedded Systems Architecture and Programming

In this module, embedded hardware and software aspects are comprehensively covered with a particular focus on industry-standard embedded architectures. The course is co-taught by Dr. El-Aal and Dr. Xia.
