Computer Engineers conceive and develop the next wave of computing advances, innovations, and devices that are used in modern computers and computer controlled systems. Our students learn how to design and integrate hardware and software that are used in computer equipment such as microelectronic chips, circuit boards and controllers, and in computer controlled systems such as computer networks, cyber physical systems, sensors and actuators, and smart grids.
This course introduces students to advanced topics in the design and analysis of analog and digital electronic circuits. Areas of emphasis include an introduction to semiconductor physics, diodes, BJT transistors, CMOS devices, advanced operational amplifier circuits and frequency response fundamentals.
PREREQUISITES: MATH 266, ENGR 321, ENGR 323; concurrent enrollment in ENGR 313 and ENGR 351L.
This lab provides a first experience working with semiconductor devices (diodes, BJTs, MOSFETs, Operational Amplifiers) for the design, creation and analysis of microelectronics using lab instruments.
PREREQUISITES: ENGR 321, ENGR 323; concurrent enrollment in ENGR 351.
This is the first semester of a two-semester Capstone Design series for students specializing in Computer Engineering. ABET mandates that the curriculum must include “a culminating major engineering design experience that 1) incorporates appropriate engineering standards and multiple constraints, and 2) is based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier course work.” We meet this requirement within ABET Criterion 5 through your Capstone Design projects, which are sponsored by industry. Each week, you will be introduced to a computer engineering product development topic during a 50 minute course meeting. For the remaining 5 hours, your group is expected to work on its Capstone Design project. You will also video-conference with your Industry Liaison and Faculty Advisor weekly.
You are fulfilling the University Requirement of Engaged Learning through ENGR 381 and 391, which are considered Fieldwork courses. During our first course meeting, we will discuss how you will record the time you spend on your project, as Fieldwork courses require at least 100 hours of field work.
PREREQUISITE: ENGR 351
This is the second semester of a two-semester Capstone Design series for students specializing in Computer Engineering.
PREREQUISITE: ENGR 382
This is the second semester of a three-semester Specialty course series for students specializing in Computer Engineering. The areas of emphasis are the analysis of the methods and algorithms used in computer engineering. The course includes hands-on experiments and a design project related to the computing performance and efficiency improvement of engineering systems.
This is the third semester of a three-semester Specialty course series for students specializing in Computer Engineering. The course consists ofan introduction to programmable logic controllers (PLCs), ladder logic programming, relays, safety issues, hardware troubleshooting, the design of human-machine interface programsand the performance and efficiency evaluation of controllers in programmable systems and embedded systems. The course includes hands-on experiments and a design project related to the implementation of programmable systems in control and automation.
