1 WELCOME Electrical, Computer and Software Engineers Fall 2014

2  Professor Andrew Kirk Chairman of Electrical & Computer Engineering  Professor Jon Webb Associate Chairman (Undergraduate Affairs)  Ms. Jennifer Zhao Liaison Librarian, Schulich Library  Ms. Lucy Zheng ECSESS President 2

3 McGill ECE at a glance:  43 Professors  25 Support Staff  1026 Undergraduate Students  360 Graduate Students 3 Research areas Bio-engineering Computational electromagnetics Intelligent systems Integrated circuits and systems Nano-electronic devices and materials Photonic systems Power engineering Software engineering Systems and control Telecommunications

4 Our Commitment McGill Engineering is committed to:  Producing self-reliant engineers who will become the leaders of tomorrow  Defining the path of future discovery in engineering and technological research  Making innovative, socially responsible contributions to the engineering community and society at large 4

5 Growth and change  Continued growth in programs (particularly Software Engineering)  New process of continuous program evaluation 5 Undergraduates

6 6 McGill University Faculty of Engineering Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Electrical Engineering Program Software Engineering Program Honours Electrical Engineering Computer Engineering Program

7 From Computer Science to EE 7 Computer Science Electrical Engineering Software Engineering Computer Engineering

8 Structure of the Programs 8 Time

9 Non-technical Courses  Intro. to Engineering Profession  Engineering Professional Practice  Communication in Engineering  Engineering Economy  “Impact of technology” course then: Programs and courses > Undergraduate > Complementary  “Humanities & social sciences” course then: Programs and courses > Undergraduate > Complementary 9

10 Natural Science Complementary Courses  None for EE, one for CE, two for SE  Only required for students from Quebec (CEGEP and French Baccalaureat)  Chosen from a given list, e.g. Musical acoustics Environmental geology Intro. to ecology and evolution 10

11 Required Math, Physics, Computer Science  Calculus, differential equations linear algebra,…  Mechanics (EE,CE), quantum physics (EE),…  Intro. to computing, algorithms (CE, SE), databases (SE),… 11

12 Required Engineering The main blocks are:  Circuits and electronics (e.g. ECSE 210)  Signal processing (e.g. ECSE 303, 306)  Electromagnetics (e.g. ECSE 351, 353)  Computer hardware (e.g. ECSE 221, 425)  Computer software (e.g. ECSE 321, 427) There is also a capstone design project 12

13 Technical Complementary Courses You choose courses that most interest you, from a given list. The list is different for each program.  EE: Choose 3 courses  CE: Choose 3 courses  SE: Choose 2 courses 13

14 Accreditation  All our programs have been accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).  This will make it straightforward for you to become registered as a Professional Engineer after graduation.  The CEAB rules impose constraints. We can allow departures from the published programs only in exceptional circumstances. 14

15 Honours Electrical Engineering  Entry is at start of 3rd semester (5th if you are doing U0)  Entry is competitive, based on cumulative GPA at that point  Minimum of 14 credits in each semester  Only about 25 students a year accepted 15

16 Honours Electrical (continued)  Program is same as Electrical Engineering with these differences: Honours Thesis Technical Complementaries are at the graduate level Numerical methods course is at the graduate level  More information? Pick up the leaflet “Honours Program in Electrical Engineering” from TR2060 or find it here: then: Programs and courses > Undergraduate > Program Information > Honours Electrical Engineering Program 16

17 Credits  1 credit = 3 hours work per week for 1 semester  e.g. 5-credit course (3-4-8): 3 lecture hours per week 4 lab hours per week 8 homework/self-study hours per week 15 hours per week total (5 x 3) 17

18 Workload  Most courses are 3 credits, but they range from 1 credit to 5 credits.  Normally take 14 to 18 credits per term (42 to 54 hours per week, for average student).  Below 12 credits, you are considered part-time. 18

19 Ds and Fs  If you fail a course: You should re-take it as soon as possible You cannot take follow-on courses  D counts as a failure in core course, i.e., all courses except Impact of Technology Humanities & Social Sciences (HSS) Basic Science complementaries 19

20 Information and Advice  Department Website:  Programs calendar:  Undergraduate Program Office (TR2060): Student Affairs Coordinators; 514-398-3943, Mrs. Prema Menon (Dept. Student Adviser) Can make appointment to see a Departmental Student Adviser (Mrs. Menon or a professor)  Engineering Student Centre (FDA 22): e.g. U0 courses, Impact of Technology, HSS 20

21 21 Sample curricula Frequency Asked Questions

22 Uniform Email Address (UEA)  All McGill students have an email address:  We will use this to communicate with you  Make sure you check it regularly you can forward mail sent here to a different email address if you like; see 22
