In circuits and electronics, students will study the application of basic electrical elements—energy sources, resistors, inductors, capacitors, diodes, transistors and integrated circuits—as they are found interconnected in operational electrical networks. The communication and signal processing area will include the study of generation, transmission and analysis of information-bearing signals, modulation systems, detection systems and imaging systems.
Students interested in computer engineering will study the design and application of microprocessor systems, digital logic devices, digital automation products, computer networks and systems involving robots and distributed processing.
The control systems area involves the analysis and design of complex systems whereby one seeks inputs to produce outputs that achieve certain performance objectives, subject to various constraints. Applications are found in disciplines, for example, as diverse as aerospace, biomedical, socioeconomic, manufacturing and processing, and many other areas in today's developing technological world.
The electromagnetic area includes the study of high-frequency waves, antennas and microwave systems for various types of propagation and transmission of encoded information through space and a variety of signal containment products.
Power and energy systems deals with the design and application of motors, generators, transformers, distribution systems and cost efficiency in the transmission of energy.
