The electrical engineering major emphasizes the fundamentals of electrical engineering, hands-on learning, and flexibility in course selection to satisfy diverse career goals. Students choose one or more areas of study beginning in their pre-junior year. State-of-the-art interdisciplinary courses have been developed to prepare the Drexel engineer for the technical challenges and the business atmosphere of the 21st century. Strong emphasis is given to the role of the engineer in the global competitive economy, and to the need to work closely with experts and practitioners in many fields. 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 that its alumni in their early years after graduation: 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; 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; 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; an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for electrical engineering practice. Electronics The electronics area of study constitutes the study of electronic and optical semiconductor devices; analog and digital electronic circuits; and generation, transmission, and reception of information both in optical and microwave frequency ranges and guided or free-space conditions. Career opportunities include jobs in telecommunications (optical, wireless, wired, satellite, and radar), VLSI (analog and digital), aerospace, remote sensing and instrumentation, computer circuitry interface, biomedical instrumentation, semiconductor device fabrication, and transportation.
