Bradley Zarek is a 1st year ECE Masters student from Jupiter, Florida. He graduated from Georgia Tech with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and is currently in the B.S./M.S. program. This is his 5th semester as a TA for ECE 2031 and his 2nd semester as a GTA. His coursework is focused on analog electronics and digital signal processing. After completing the M.S. program, he will work for Texas Instruments as an analog designer of buck switching regulators. In his free time, Bradley enjoys playing guitar, going hiking, watching sports, and working on electronics projects. He understands that ECE 2031 is a lot of work, but the skills learned in the class are unbelievably useful. The ability to design, verify, prototype, debug, and communicate results will take you far in ECE and CS.
Derek Watson is in his second and final semester as a BS/MS student in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech. This is his fifth semester as a TA and second as a GTA for ECE 2031. His coursework is focused on computer software and networks, and he is constantly looking for projects that combine the two. In his free time he enjoys playing video games, watching basketball and sci-fi TV shows, and working on embedded electronics projects. His advice for 2031 students is to enjoy it while you can, because you will look back on this class later in life (either in two years while taking Senior Design or in 30 when you get promoted to engineering manager) and realize how important these concepts are.
