The major provides a broad focus on digital circuit design, computer hardware and organization, programming and computer software, algorithms, and networks. Computer engineers design smaller, faster, and more reliable computers and digital systems, embed microprocessors in larger systems (e.g., anti-lock brake systems), work in theoretical issues in computing, use object-oriented programming languages, and design large-scale software systems and computer networks. Computer engineers may work in positions that apply computers in control systems, digital signal processing, telecommunications, and power systems, and may design very large-scale integration (VLSI) integrated circuits and systems. The computer engineering degree program is designed to provide our students with breadth in engineering, the sciences, mathematics, and the humanities, as well as depth in both software and hardware disciplines appropriate for a computer engineer. It embodies the philosophy and style of the Drexel Engineering Curriculum, and will develop the student's design and analytical skills. In combination with the co-op experience, it opens to the student opportunities in engineering practice, advanced training in engineering or in other professions, and an entry to business and administration. Mission Statement The ECE Department at Drexel University serves the public and the university community by providing superior career-integrated education in electrical and computer engineering; by conducting research in these fields, to generate new knowledge and technologies; and by promoting among all its constituents professionalism, social responsibility, civic engagement and leadership. Program Educational Objectives The Electrical and Computer Engineering Program Educational Objectives are such that its alumni, in their early years after graduation can: Secure positions and continue as valued, creative, dependable, and proficient employees in a wide variety of fields and industries, in particular as electrical and computer engineers; Succeed in graduate and professional studies, such as engineering, science, law, medicine and business; Pursue professional development through lifelong learning opportunities for a successful and rewarding career; Provide leadership in their profession, in their communities, and in the global society; Contribute to their professional disciplines body of knowledge; Function as responsible members of society with an awareness of the social and ethical ramifications of their work. Student Outcomes The department's student outcomes reflect the skills and abilities that the curriculum is designed to provide to students by the time they graduate. These are: an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering; an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data; an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability; an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams; an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems; an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility; an ability to communicate effectively; the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context; a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning; a knowledge of contemporary issues;
