EE 2310 Introduction to Digital Systems or CS 3340 ComputerArchitecture, and PHYS 2326 Electromagnetism and Waves
Students that have completed CS 4340 cannot get credit for this course. Corequisite: CS 4141 Digital Systems Laboratory (1 semester hour) Laboratoryto accompany CS 4340. The purpose of this laboratory is to give students anintuitive understanding of digital circuits and systems. Laboratory exercisesinclude construction of simple digital logic circuits using prototyping kits and board-level assembly of a personal computer. Students that have credit for CS 2110 have credit for this course and cannot get additional credit for thiscourse
Course Description
CS 4341 Digital Logic and Computer Design (3 semester hours) Booleanalgebra and logic circuits; synchronous sequential circuits; gate leveldesign of ALSU, registers, and memory unit; register transfer operations;design of data path and control unit for
for a small computer; Input-Outputinterface. Students that have completed CS 4340 cannot get credit for thiscourse

The University of Texas System and The University of Texas at Dallas have rules andregulations for the orderly and efficient conduct of their business. It is theresponsibility of each student and each student organization to be knowledgeableabout the rules and regulations which govern student conduct and activities. Generalinformation on student conduct and discipline is contained in the UTD publication,
 Ato Z Guide
, which is provided to all registered students each academic year.The University of Texas at Dallas administers student discipline within theprocedures of recognized and established due process. Procedures are defined anddescribed in the
 Rules and Regulations, Board of Regents, The University of TexasSystem, Part 1, Chapter VI, Section 3
, and in Title V, Rules on Student Services and
Activities of the university’s
 Handbook of Operating Procedures
. Copies of theserules and regulations are available to students in the Office of the Dean of Students,where staff members are available to assist students in interpreting the rules andregulations (SU 1.602, 972/883-6391).A student at the university neither loses the rights nor escapes the responsibilities of citizenship. He or she is expected to obey federal, state, and local laws as well as the
Regents’ Rules, university regulations, and administrative rules. Students are subject
to discipline for violating the standards of conduct whether such conduct takes placeon or off campus, or whether civil or criminal penalties are also imposed for suchconduct.
The faculty expects from its students a high level of responsibility and academichonesty. Because the value of an academic degree depends upon the absoluteintegrity of the work done by the student for that degree, it is imperative that a studentdemonstrate a high standard of individual honor in his or her scholastic work.Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, statements, acts or omissionsrelated to applications for enrollment or the award of a degree, and/or the submission
as one’s own work or material that is not one’s own. As a general rule, scholastic
dishonesty involves one of the following acts: cheating, plagiarism, collusion and/orfalsifying academic records. Students suspected of academic dishonesty are subjectto disciplinary proceedings.Plagiarism, especially from the web, from portions of papers for other classes, and
from any other source is unacceptable and will be dealt with under the university’s
policy on plagiarism (see general catalog for details). This course will use theresources of turnitin.com, which searches the web for possible plagiarism and is over90% effective.
Email Use
The University of Texas at Dallas recognizes the value and efficiency of communication between faculty/staff and students through electronic mail. At thesame time, email raises some issues concerning security and the identity of eachindividual in an email exchange. The university encourages all official student emailcorrespondence be sent only
to a student’s U.T. Dallas email address and that faculty
and staff consider email from students official only if it originates from a UTDstudent account. This allows the university to maintain a high degree of confidence inthe identity of all individual corresponding and the security of the transmittedinformation. UTD furnishes each student with a free email account that is to be usedin all communication with university personnel. The Department of InformationResources at U.T. Dallas provides a method for students to have their U.T. Dallasmail forwarded to other accounts.
 Withdrawal fromClass
The administration of this institution has set deadlines for withdrawal of any college-level courses. These dates and times are published in that semester's course catalog.Administration procedures must be followed. It is the student's responsibility tohandle withdrawal requirements from any class. In other words, I cannot drop orwithdraw any student. You must do the proper paperwork to ensure that you will notreceive a final grade of "F" in a course if you choose not to attend the class once youare enrolled.
Procedures for student grievances are found in Title V, Rules on Student Services and
Activities, of the university’s
 Handbook of Operating Procedures
.In attempting to resolve any student grievance regarding grades, evaluations, or otherfulfillments of academic responsibility, it is the obligation of the student first to makea serious effort to resolve the matter with the instructor, supervisor, administrator, or
