1 Electrical and Computer Engineering Welcome!

2 21 full-time faculty 310 undergraduates, 165 grad students ~85 BS, 35 MS, 4 PhD annually Innovative, project-based under- graduate program with a focus on innovation, creativity and teamwork Project/research activity with Analog Devices, General Dynamics, Texas Instruments, Intel, BAE Systems, Raytheon... Very active graduate research program that integrates undergrads into many of the projects ECE at WPI Holy Name High School Wind Turbine that resulted from an ECE Undergraduate Project

3 Welcome to the ECE Department State of the Art, Student Centric Modern, well equipped and well maintained laboratories. Projects and laboratory experiences that are “real” and make a difference. A strong advising system. Focus on teamwork. Friendly, supportive community. Active student groups: IEEE, Eta Kappa Nu Open 24:7 for student use. Cost effective BS/MS program. Computer and Embedded Systems Laboratory.

4 Focus Areas within ECE Computers/microprocessor systems Microelectronics Circuits Electromagnetics, Antennas Satellite and Indoor Positioning Systems Power Electronics and Systems Data Security, Cryptography Communications, Wireless Networking Software Defined Radios (SDRs) Biomedical Signal Processing, Advanced Prosthetics Robotic Systems and Sensors ECE Labs

5 Computer Engineering or Computer Science?? Hardware + Software vs. Software Engineering vs. Science Computer scientists discover underlying principles of computation: logic, language, knowledge organization, intelligence… Computer engineers use these principles to solve problems in hardware and software involving an enormous number of applications, products and devices using embedded processors and DSPs

8 Program Distribution Requirements

9 Finding Your Path Strategy for Planning your Courses –“I’m not sure what I like best in ECE …” Sample different areas Build breadth to inform decision Eventually go in depth for good MQP background –“I know I want to do …” Go in depth as soon as possible! Fill in breadth later for solid ECE-wide background Tools –Program Flowchart Find courses, paths in areas of interest –Program Tracking Sheet Meet all catalog requirements for graduation

Science Math –Calc I – IV –MA2051, MA2201, MA2621, MA 2071 Physics –PH 1110/1111 (Mechanics) –PH1120/PH1121 (Electricity and Magnetism) –PH1130 (Modern Physics) –PH1140 (Oscillations and Waves) Computer Science (at least one 2000-level course, e.g. CS2301) Chemistry or Biology, at least one of either At least one “ES” course at 2000 level or above (but not ES3011)

19 Sophomore Year  Suggested ECE Courses  Depend on path in 2010, basic courses  Suggest completing your Humanities & Arts (HUA) Requirement  Suggest completing CS Requirement  CS2102 (Object Oriented Design) or CS2301 (System Programming for Non-majors)  If you are interested in an off-campus IQP during your junior year, you must apply by September of your sophomore year.  If you are interested in a summer internship, you may start to look for one during your sophomore year

23 Junior Year & IQP Find your specific interests within ECE: 1.Power System Engineering (3501, 3503) 2.Analog Microelectronics (3204, 4902, 4904) 3.RF Circuits & Microwave (3113) 4.Signals & Communications (2305, 3308, 3311, 4305, 4307) 5.Biomedical Engineering (ECE/BME3011, 4011) 6.Computer Engineering (3801, 3803, 4801) Suggest complete your IQP If you are interested in off-campus MQP, apply by the beginning of November in your junior year. –Lincoln Lab; Limerick, Ireland; Silicon Valley; Mitre; Wall St; etc. –Or, make sure you have an on-campus MQP scheduled. Consider the BS/MS program; Apply by the beginning of D term in your junior year.

24 Senior Year & MQP MQP, MQP, MQP –It usually takes 1 full term for an off-campus project. –It usually takes 3 terms for an on-campus project. Check with your advisor on your ECE requirements –At least 12 ECE courses plus MQP –At least 3 courses in Electrical Engineering –At least 2 courses in Computer Engineering Check with your advisor on your overall degree requirements –15 units total (including everything) –HUA (2 units), Math & Basic Science (4 units), Engineering Science and Design (6 units), IQP (1 unit), PE & SS (1 unit), Free Elective (1 unit) Ready for walking cross the stage on graduation day …
