The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering seeks to produce creative and competitive experts with strong fundamental skills and specialties in electrical and computer engineering. The department encourages students to improve communication and teamwork skills and to understand professional and ethical responsibilities. The school offers electrical and fundamental computer engineering courses and various specialized courses including microwave and optics, semiconductor, circuit design, control, signal processing, information and communications, and computers.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE at Boise State provides excellent educational opportunities and hands-on research experiences for all students. This new in-person course will lay the foundation necessary for success in the ECE curriculum. Students will learn about common hardware and software tools. An overview of the profession and potential careers will help students put their learning in context, and a lab project will provide hands-on experience. The College of Engineering at Boise State University seeks to recognize students who engage in research or other creative work while pursuing their undergraduate degree. Our aim is to offer a robust education in electrical engineering available to students in online and hybrid formats.
Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline concerned with the study, design and application of equipment, devices and systems which use electricity , electronics , and electromagnetism. It emerged as an identifiable occupation in the latter half of the 19th century after commercialization of the electric telegraph , the telephone , and electrical power generation, distribution and use. Electrical engineering is now divided into a wide range of fields, including computer engineering , systems engineering , power engineering , telecommunications , radio-frequency engineering , signal processing , instrumentation , and electronics. Many of these disciplines overlap with other engineering branches, spanning a huge number of specializations including hardware engineering, power electronics , electromagnetics and waves, microwave engineering , nanotechnology , electrochemistry , renewable energies, mechatronics, and electrical materials science. Electrical engineers typically hold a degree in electrical engineering or electronic engineering. Practising engineers may have professional certification and be members of a professional body or an international standards organization.
Computer engineering CoE or CpE is a branch of engineering that integrates several fields of computer science and electronic engineering required to develop computer hardware and software. Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing , from the design of individual microcontrollers , microprocessors , personal computers , and supercomputers , to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work but also how they integrate into the larger picture. Usual tasks involving computer engineers include writing software and firmware for embedded microcontrollers , designing VLSI chips , designing analog sensors , designing mixed signal circuit boards , and designing operating systems. Computer engineers are also suited for robotics research, which relies heavily on using digital systems to control and monitor electrical systems like motors , communications , and sensors. In many institutions of higher learning, computer engineering students are allowed to choose areas of in-depth study in their junior and senior year because the full breadth of knowledge used in the design and application of computers is beyond the scope of an undergraduate degree. Other institutions may require engineering students to complete one or two years of general engineering before declaring computer engineering as their primary focus.
Within a small class, student teams explore real engineering designs. Project required. A comprehensive introduction to computer programming with applications to various areas in electrical and computer engineering. The theory of digital circuits and computer systems stressing general techniques for the analysis and synthesis of combinational and sequential logic systems. The course will provide an introduction to computer programming and electronics for students without requiring any prior background in these topics. SI, DU.
Computer engineering deals with both hardware and software aspects of computer systems. Students take essential electrical engineering classes along with specialized classes in computer engineering and computer science. Demand for computer engineers is strong due to the growing use of computers in all sorts of products and the need for engineers competent with computers in both hardware and software areas.
