  • Title: Drexel ECE : Frequently Asked Questions
    Descriptive info: Frequently Asked Questions.. General.. Contact.. Privacy.. 1.. What kind of degrees does the ECE Department at Drexel offer?.. At the undergraduate level, we offer.. Bachelor of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering.. and in.. At the graduate level, we offer.. Master of Science.. degrees in.. ,.. Telecommunication Engineering.. and.. In addition the University offers.. Doctor of Philosophy.. degrees for studies in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering.. 2.. What are the advantages of a co-op program?.. Most of our undergraduate students (about two thirds) select the 5-year three co-op cycle option.. The rest are on the 4-year plan with a single co-op cycle.. Each cycle is six (6) months long.. To locate co-op opportunities, most students respond to job postings from industrial firms.. These positions are advertised by the university.. Other students identify their prospective employer through an independent search.. During a process of interviews and job offers, students are matched with jobs that fit employer needs as well as student interests and qualifications.. The co-op experience provides students with an opportunity to go through real life professional challenges in an industrial environment.. These challenges often require that students apply what they have studied in school so far, and in addition learn new skills and methods on the job.. The co-op experience gives Drexel students a competitive edge in two areas: (1) the practical experience guides our students in their course and specialty selection; students often use their industrial experience to select courses and course sequences; (2) Drexel graduates are considered by many prospective employers as more experienced than students from programs that do not offer co-op.. Also, in many cases our students are able to gain join a former co-op employer for a permanent position after graduation.. 3.. What is the difference between Computer Engineering and Computer Science?.. Note: the answer made use of sources [1-2].. The overlap between the computer engineering and computer science is significant.. Both fields study the use of the digital computer as a tool that makes much of modern technology possible.. Both disciplines study the inner workings of computers and both study hardware as well as software aspects of computer systems.. Students in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical and computer engineering will all study programming and basic computer operation.. In many programs students will also be exposed to large scale computing, and to modern topics in design and operation of clusters and cohorts of computers and computing devices.. The differences are those of emphasis.. Computer science is traditionally more concerned with the theoretical underpinnings of computation and of programming; thus one typically finds in computer science curricula courses in programming, algorithms, numerical analysis (how do you guarantee a number produced by a computer program is accurate), and  ...   [1,3].. Electrical engineering deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism.. The field first became an identifiable occupation in the late nineteenth century in the wake of commercialization of the electric telegraph and electrical power supply.. The field now covers a wide range of sub-disciplines including power, electronics, control systems, electro-optics, signal processing, and telecommunications.. Most recently, electrical engineering had expanded to include fields like nanotechnology and mechatronics, and there is significant activity at the interface of electrical engineering and the life sciences.. Computer engineering has emerged in the late 1970s from electrical engineering, and is still considered by some to be a sub-discipline of electrical engineering.. It deals with the study and application of computers, computing, and computer-based systems.. The field covers a range of sub-disciplines such as computer hardware, computer architecture, hardware/software integration, computer systems engineering, and embedded systems.. Computer engineering shares areas of interest with electrical engineering, software engineering, and computer science.. 5.. What is the difference between an electrical and an electronics engineer relating to the type of job these engineers may get?.. In many institutions and countries, the terms electrical engineer and electronics engineer are used interchangeably and there is really no difference between them.. In institutions and geographical regions where the terms are differentiated, the term electrical engineer is often broader.. The term electronics engineer is used to describe individuals who are working at the component, device, and circuit level such as engineers who concentrate on design of integrated circuits, or on development of control and signal shaping hardware for monitoring devices and sensors.. The term electrical engineer refers in those instances to individuals who are engaged in activities that are not focused on devices but on larger systems and general techniques.. Examples include techniques for image processing; integration of multiple subsystems into a robot; and calculation of stability margins of a large power generation system.. Both device-level and system-level engineering practitioners in the electronics and electrical disciplines appear to be in demand.. Electrical and electronics engineers continue to occupy positions in many industries, including semiconductor manufacturing, computer hardware design, telecommunication, power delivery, and aerospace.. The.. US Bureau of Labor Statistics.. predicts at present that both electrical engineers and electronics engineers (and also what the Bureau calls computer hardware engineers ) will see an increase of 9 to 17% in available jobs between 2004 and 2014..

  • Title: Drexel ECE : History
    Descriptive info: Drexel ECE: History.. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Drexel University traces its beginnings to series of programs in Applied Electricity that were developed at Drexel Institute of Art Science and Industry (established 1891) between 1893 and 1899.. The first Professor of Applied Electricity at Drexel was Arthur J.. Rowland, a graduate of Johns Hopkins University who joined the Institute in summer 1893, and started the new Applied Electricity program in the basement of a building at 28 South 32nd Street.. By the time Rowland left Drexel in 1918, the Institute had a growing Department of Electrical Engineering (introduced in 1900) and, for a while, even a separate School of Electrical Engineering (1903-1906).. Courses were focused on machinery and power, with strong elements of mechanics and machine design (including mandatory classes in drafting and machine shop work).. Students could choose between 2-year, 3-year and 4-year programs based on their background and objectives, and admission criteria were flexible.. The basic value proposition of the department (and the school) was: affordable and socially relevant education, with high quality and strong practical flavor, leading to successful placement of graduates in the job market and to rewarding careers in engineering.. It should not be surprising then that it took Drexel 17 years (from 1893 to 1914) to start granting formal Bachelor degrees in Engineering.. For almost two decades the focus was on practical preparation for the job market, not on the formalities of degrees.. In 1919 Drexel adopted cooperative education and organized the academic year in quarters.. The Electrical Engineering Department has been joined by Robert C.. Disque of the University of Wisconsin, who would be involved in its leadership and development until the 1950s (he was in charge for 34 years, including a few years as Interim President).. The  ...   of Biomedical Engineering at Drexel were made, through a program in Biomedical Instrumentation.. The study of computers and computer languages was initiated shortly thereafter.. In 1965 Drexel conferred its first PhD degrees.. The Electrical Engineering curriculum expanded well beyond power engineering and machinery, to include instrumentation, electronics, computers, control and communications.. The late 1960s and early 1970s saw introduction of formal studies in new areas such as robotics, signal processing, and radar.. These trends were accelerated in the 1980s when the department was renamed Electrical and Computer Engineering, and when Drexel University (the name was changed from Drexel Institute of Technology in 1970) became the first major academic institution to require all incoming student to use a personal computer.. The ECE Department entered new research areas in biomedical diagnostics (especially ultrasonics) and developed new facilities and large scale projects in image processing and intelligent control.. Today the ECE Department is the vibrant home of close to 900 students and 60 faculty and staff members.. They are engaged in the study and implementation of systems, methods and algorithms in areas ranging from clean energy to bio-photonics, and from wireless communications to entertainment technology.. While the scope, areas of interest and facilities of the ECE Department do not resemble what could be found in the humble basement where we originated more than a century ago, we continue to carry the same basic value proposition that motivated Arthur J.. Rowland in 1893:.. affordable and socially relevant education, with high quality and strong practical flavor, leading to successful placement of graduates in the job market and to rewarding careers in engineering.. Edward D.. McDonald and Edward M.. Hinton:.. Drexel Institute of Technology 1891-1941.. , Philadelphia: Drexel Institute of Technology, 1942.. M..
