Bachelor in COMPUTER ENGINEERING is designed to give a student a strong background in the fundamentals of mathematics, physics, and computer engineering. A graduate of this program should be able to use these fundamentals to analyze and evaluate computer systems, both hardware and software. A graduate should also be able to design and implement computer systems, which are state of the art solutions to a variety of computing problems. This includes systems which have both a hardware and a software component, whose design requires a well defined interface between the two, and the evaluation of the associated engineering trade-offs.
This course provides the fundamentals of electrical engineering, with an emphasis on the generation of electrical energy, its transmission, and its use in motors and other loads. Students completing this course will be able to analyze electric circuits and will have an understanding of the essentials of electric power. Students will be able to design and analyze wave shaping circuits, voltage rectifiers and regulators, low-power amplifiers, and digital logic gates. The course includes a significant laboratory component in which the students build diode and transistor circuits for a variety of low-power analog and digital applications. Software systems frequently drive physical devices and are often complex in their own right. The course uses mobile robots as an application area to explore software design. Students will be able to design significant software programs and components in the presence of other software and hardware subsystems. The course sets the foundation for designing digital systems for a wide range of applications. It provides the basics of logic design concepts and the implementation of logic functions using modern design tools and hardware platforms. Students will be able to design digital circuits for a multitude of logic and arithmetic applications. The course includes a significant laboratory component in which students analyze, design, simulate and implement digital circuits.
