The Aerospace Engineering program is offered jointly with the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. It is concerned with the engineering science that governs the design and construction of aircraft and spacecraft. This includes the mechanisms behind flight and propulsion in the atmosphere and space, including aerodynamics, lift and draft, as well as the design and control of aircrafts. Aerospace systems rely significantly on electrical and computerengineering content, including topics such as avionic navigation systems, communication networks, and flight control systems. More details about the Aerospace Engineering program can be found in §71.55.
Choosing your career path in Electrical and ComputerEngineering is a combination of matching your skills and interests in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree. This four year degree is an internationally recognised qualification with the first year specifically designed to give you a taste of all three specialisations in electrical, computer and software engineering. As an undergraduate you will benefit from exposure to projects similar to those in industry. We build on our experience and the innovation of our researchers to provide the very best standards in research and learning.
Undergraduate degree not in Electrical or ComputerEngineering: Applicants with an undergraduate degree in a discipline other than Electrical or ComputerEngineering may have to take several undergraduate courses to prepare them for graduate work in Electrical and ComputerEngineering. The specific courses required will depend on the undergraduate major and coursework as well as the specific area of Electrical or ComputerEngineering of interest. Usually, only 3-4 pre-requisite courses are required. Following admission to the program, applicants in this situation should meet with the department graduate coordinator to determine the required pre-requisites that should be taken.
A statistical analysis of the undergraduate and postgraduate studies in the Department of Electrical and ComputerEngineering (ECE) in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), Greece, is given focusing on gender issues. The investigation covers the academic performance and the professional development of the female students and the results are interpreted in terms of gender diversity. Interesting conclusions are reached revealing the behavior of women in Greece on their education performance as well as on their career perspectives over the last three decades. Key Words: women in electricalengineering, gender and technology, gender and ICT
There are two circumstances in which a student can enter the Ph.D. program in electricalengineering or computerengineering. In one circumstance, the student enters the Ph.D. program with a prior M.S. degree in the same major. (A prior M.S. degree in a closely related engineering major may be treated as equivalent to a prior M.S. degree in the major of the Ph.D. program if so determined by the Department at the time of admission into the Ph.D. program.) In the other circumstance, the student enters the Ph.D. program with only a prior B.S. degree in the same major. (Direct entry to the doctoral program from the baccalaureate is permitted only for students with an exceptionally strong academic record and exceptional potential for research as determined by the ECE faculty during evaluation of the student’s application.) The requirements listed in the next several pages apply to both circumstances except where otherwise specified .
Students transferring to YCP from another college will be admitted to the electricalengineering or computerengineering major upon approval of the program coordinator based on space availability and the student’s prior record of academic performance. All transfer students must submit an official application through the York College Admissions Office with either electricalengineering or computerengineering listed as their intended major.
Dr. Michael Reynolds will join the faculty of the Electrical and ComputerEngineering (ECE) Department in August 2015 at the rank of Associate Professor. Dr. Reynolds earned a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering (ME) from Purdue University in 2004. Dr. Reynolds was hired to help establish the new ME program at UWF and will hold the title of Program Director.
The intent of the accelerated five-year Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Science in ElectricalEngineering (or ComputerEngineering) program is to prepare high-achieving and highly-motivated undergraduate electricalengineering students for either doctoral studies or a variety of advanced professional positions. Electricalengineering students interested in the accelerated program should apply through the undergraduate office of the Department of Electrical and ComputerEngineering. The program is highly selective and is offered to the top 10 to 20 percent of the junior undergraduate class. Admission is based on academic performance (at least a major g.p.a. of 3.30) as well as undergraduate research and professional activities. The accelerated program is as rigorous as the current B.E. and M.S. programs taken separately. The requirements for the accelerated program are the same as the requirements for the B.E. and M.S. programs except that two 300-level electives in the B.E. program are substituted by two 500-level graduate courses. Therefore six graduate credits will be counted towards the undergraduate degree. Detailed guidelines and sample course sequences are provided by the Department.
The Faculty of Engineering recently restructured all its undergraduate programs into a new curriculum for the classes of 2013 and later. These changes were approved by Senate in June, 2006. As well as shortening the programs from 10 academic to 8 academic terms, a major focus of the new curriculum of the ElectricalEngineering and ComputerEngineering programs is the redesign of the stream of project courses associated with engineering design (a curriculum component defined by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) accreditation process). These project-oriented, design- heavy courses are mostly contained in the last 3 academic terms (terms 6 to 8) of the programs.
A new, interdisciplinary, team-taught course has been designed to educate students in Electrical and ComputerEngineering (ECE) so that they can respond to global and urgent issues concerning computer control systems in nuclear power plants. This paper discusses our experience and assessment of the interdisciplinary computer and nuclear energy course, which was developed and offered primarily to ECE students at Howard University. A unique team-teaching model utilized with ECE professors and nuclear field experts was applied to teach the two diverse subjects: computer safety and nuclear energy. The survey result from the first offering of the course showed a very positive response from the majority of the students about the team-teaching method and the knowledge acquired on the two subjects.

In an attempt to better serve our undergraduate and graduate EE majors, and to shorten the time between your discovering a problem and getting advice on the solution, the department has set up an “OPEN ADVISING” system. There are many hours during the week (usually over 16) during which you can see a faculty adviser without any appointment. Signs are posted early each quarter listing the open advising hours. Any of the faculty advisers should be able to help you with your problems or with any necessary forms. They can obtain your records while you wait. Of course, with this open advising system, there may be peak times when a large number of students are seeking advising. If you see a crowd at the faculty member’s door, we suggest you return at the next available time. We try to continuously adapt the hours to the needs of the students (e.g. during registration periods, the number of open hours increases), but we hope you understand that, as in any Engineering problem, trade-offsare involved. Since no appointments are required, there is little control to assure against overload situations.

• Both of the current specializations in ECE allow Outside Technical Electives, generally considered to be upper level courses in other engineering fields, math and physical sciences. This proposal replaces Outside Technical Electives with Directed Electives (up to 15 hr EES, 11 hr CES – described in section 7) which are intended to increase flexibility for students to take courses from a somewhat broader range than we have traditionally allowed. The flexibility will enable students to pursue an ECE degree while preparing for other professional tracks (e.g. pre-med), select courses in business or entrepreneurship (which many of our alumni cite as helpful in their careers), facilitate the transfer of students into ECE from other majors, regional campuses or other colleges, preserve flexibility for engineering undecided students, and allow students to take courses from other engineering departments to help prepare for Professional Engineer licensure exams.
In which autopilot with artificial intelligence are critical subsystems whose growth needs multidisciplinary move toward along with synchronized engineering to create a better, safer and reliable future? We have studied and implemented a miniature scale model with outcome of satisfactory results of supporting realistic vehicular mobility simulation using concepts of swarm technology discussed in this paper. Our Model must be equipped with a variety of instrumentation and controls depending upon the mission of the target vehicle. Mechatronics, Systems Engineering (SE), Control Systems (CS), Swarm Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Image Processing Cloud Computing, Virtualization with caching, Fuzzy Logic and Neural Networks has a potential scope of design for the prototype needed to be developed that will navigate to a desired location with obstacle avoidance. In this design of autonomous vehicles have access to information about their surroundings gathered from its several sensors such as Radar, GPS including a very important component of this system Infrastructure Unit which is connected virtually with Vehicle's Operating System, mapping and direction system is discussed broadly. Here, Infrastructure Unit plays a major role in routing the traffic to maintain free flow and accident avoidance, by provides information such as Routes, Traffic, Time, Directions to Vehicles and maintains constant speed for all vehicles to achieve an efficient autonomous transportation reducing accidents to zero. To improve the response time and storage of V2I Communication a new approach of caching and virtualization are encapsulated with a better and faster hardware such as Solid State Technology. This study has various applications in Space Science, Oceanography, and Automation in Traffic control which can effortlessly meet the necessity, scalability of future Generation.
engineering. For example, a recent report by the National Science Foundation has raised concerns that there has been an overall decrease in graduate enrollment in engineering. They have warned that this decrease is likely to have a negative impact on the economy in the United States. … One manner in which to increase the overall pool of trained engineers is to increase the participation of women in these fields." Yet the proportion of women and minorities entering engineering fields remains low. For example, in 2004, women, African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans, respectively, earned 20.1%, 4.9%, 6.3%, and 0.5% of the B.S. in Engineering degrees awarded in the United States. But in the 2000 United States Census, these groups accounted for, respectively, 50.9%, 12.3%, 12.5%, and 0.9% of the total population. While these percentages are not directly comparable, they do suggest that these groups are underrepresented in the engineering workforce. In recent years a great deal of effort has gone into trying to understand the reasons for this underrepresentation and to broaden the participation in engineering programs. Many of the successful teaching strategies identified have been found to be more effective for all engineering students than traditional methods. Two good sources of information about these efforts, for example, are (NAMEPA, 2006) and (WEPAN, 2006). A comprehensive description of one successful effort, aimed at increasing the number of women in computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, is provided in (Margolis and Fisher, 2002). The PFF program can provide a forum for discussing these strategies.
publications unified graph theory methods over multiple disciplines, providing a common language to the broad range of researchers (10). Graphs are a main structure in discrete mathematics and have applications in a wide variety of subjects. As examples, graph theory is used in computer science to model networks of communication, or to show the structure of the web (11). In chemistry, the connection of molecules, showing atoms and bonds can be considered a graph (12). And in sociology, networks can be created linking people who are friends, or actors who have worked together (13). The following sections are meant to give a brief introduction to graphs and some of the terms used to describe types of graphs and their individual parts.
Now, you could argue (correctly) that the exact voltage across the diode will depend on the current, which we don’t know yet. We can make a good guess that it will be around 2V because we already found that the current should be above 10 mA and not greater than25 mA, and from the current-‐voltage characteristic, repeated in Figure 16, the voltage doesn’t change very much over that range. The value of “2 V” is an “engineering approximation.”
