2003 - 2004
The area of computer engineering has become a major part of electrical engineering, so much so that a separate degree is offered. Computer engineering, in a broad sense, deals with the body of knowledge that forms the theoretical and practical basis for the storage, retrieval, processing, analysis, recognition and display of information. This area also includes the design and implementation of computer systems and peripheral devices for information handling and engineering applications.
The computer engineering degree provides an academic program and research environment to obtain knowledge and skills in digital hardware, microprocessors, software systems and computer applications. In the hardware courses, students study the functional behavior of integrated circuit components and the design of complex digital systems. In the software system courses, students receive hands-on operating experience in different aspects of system software and their relations to hardware facilities. Courses in computer engineering also deal with pattern processing, machine intelligence and information system design and evaluation.
Electives are taken according to individual interest to permit a student to delve more deeply into subject matter previously introduced. Students can specialize in the areas of: computer system architecture, computer communications, computer network architecture, computer systems and controls, machine learning, man-machine interaction, robotics and machine intelligence. Technical electives must be taken from an approved list.
Students who want to take their technical electives in hardware would pursue the computer degree through the ECE department. Students who want to take their technical electives in software would pursue the computer degree through the CISE department.
Computer engineering students should refer to the Departmental Requirements listed under Electrical Engineering.
