Certificate in Computer Engineering
The department offers a program leading to a certificate in computer engineering jointly administered with the Department of Computer Science.
The certificate requires 15 credit hours and all courses must be at the 100 level or above.
At least five lecture-based courses must be taken from a published list of computer engineering core courses.
From these core courses, at least one course must be taken from each of the following three core areas
Both bridge courses (e.g. EE 200 and EE 201) may count as one of the five computer engineering core courses.
Certificate in Microwave and Wireless Engineering
In today's changing economy, the microwave and wireless engineering industry is moving away from traditional military applications and toward commercial opportunities. With the availability of relatively inexpensive microwave components and improved digital communications, these opportunities have few limits. Radar, satellite, wireless radio and optical communication, and collision avoidance radar are just a few areas, which utilize microwave technology.
In addition, computer hardware researchers and designers are finding that some microwave engineering concepts are necessary to develop faster computer circuits. As engineers explore low microwave frequencies and even lower radio frequencies, this technology will be applied to cable, broadcast, television, medical, and other commercial uses. The certificate program educates professionals in the exciting new uses of microwave and wireless technology, by preparing students through extensive lab and project work.
