Robert Mrtek, Chair
Senate Committee on Educational Policy
FROM:
Roger Nelson
Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
I am submitting for review and action by the Senate Committee on Educational Policy the
attached proposal from the College of Engineering and the Department of Electrical and
Computer Engineering to revise the B.S. in Electrical Engineering and the Minor in
Electrical Engineering.
The proposal was approved by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in
November 2004 and by the College of Engineering Educational Policy Committee on April 19,
2005.

Title:
Revision of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering;
Revision of the Minor in Electrical Engineering
Sponsor:
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
College of Engineering
Overview and Justification of Proposed Changes in the Major:
The proposed revision of the Electrical Engineering (EE) curriculum includes the following.
1) Course credit increase for ECE 265, Introduction to Logic Design, from 3 to 4 credit
hours. This will provide students with a better background for subsequent courses in the
Electrical Engineering curriculum. ECE 265 teaches students the fundamentals of digital
system analysis and design, which is important material in the fields of electrical and
computer engineering. In the past, this course used two lecture hours and one laboratory
meeting each week. It has been very difficult to cover the range of material that provides
a reasonably complete background on this subject. With the additional 1 credit hour and
therefore one more meeting each week, it will become possible to present to a greater
depth sequential circuit design, memory register design and introduce material concerned
with computer organization. This will provide students with a better overall perspective
of logic design beyond the limited exposure they have received in the past.
2) Deletion of ECE 220, Electromagnetics, and its lab ECE 221. This course and its lab are
replaced by Phys 142, General Physics II, Electricity and Magnetism, which includes a
lab. The Physics Department has made substantial modifications to the laboratory
component of PHYS 142 and now serves the needs of Electrical Engineering majors.
3) Deletion of ECE 435, Wireless Communication Networks, a technical elective. This
course has been superseded by ECE 437, Wireless Communications, a new technical
elective. However, ECE 435 will not be dropped because it will still be offered on-line as
part of the Master of Engineering program within the College of Engineering.
4) Addition of Phys 142. This course replaces ECE 220/221, (See item #3.).
5) Addition of a new course, ECE 115, Introduction to Electrical and Computer
Engineering. This course will be a requirement for freshmen in the ECE department, and
early in the curriculum it will provide fundamental concepts and an overview of electrical
and computer engineering.
6) Moved Phys 244 from the required EE core group of courses to the technical electives
group. Since Phys 142 is now included in the required Electrical Engineering core, the
general physics requirement is met with Phys 142.
7) 7) Addition of a new course, ECE 417, Digital Signal Processing II to the list of technical
electives. This new course is a follow-up course to ECE 317, Digital Signal Processing I,
in which students learn about the fundamental theory concerned with signal analysis by
digital means and the design of digital filters. In ECE 417 students will learn about
methods for signal analysis that build on the methods presented in ECE 317 to overcome
complexity and accuracy problems associated with the fundamental methods presented in
ECE 317. Furthermore, students will learn about implementing signal analysis
algorithms and digital filtering methods with special purpose digital signal processing
microprocessors (DSP chips), which are extensively utilized in communications, controls
and audio and video signal processing. In the laboratory part of the course students will
learn about interfacing hardware and software development for DSP devices.
Overview and Justification of Proposed Changes in the Minor:
The proposed revision of the Electrical Engineering major requires some modification of the
minor in Electrical Engineering. The modifications include:
1) In the group of prerequisite courses: (a) ECE 220/221 has been replaced by Phys 142; (b)
the new course, ECE 115, has been added; and (c) ECE 225, Circuit Analysis, has been
moved from the prerequisite group of courses to the required set of courses. The new
course, ECE 115, will provide a better background in electrical and computer engineering
than ECE 225.
2) As a result of changing ECE 225 from a prerequisite course to a required course, the
required set of courses has been changed from: ECE 265, 310, 322 and 340 to: ECE 225,
265, 310, 322 and 340.
Catalog Statement: Attached.
Minority Impact: None.
Budgetary and Staff Implications: None
Library Resource Implications: None
Space Implications: None
Unit (e.g., department) approval date: November 2004
College approval date: Engineering EPC, April 19, 2005
Proposed Effective Date: Spring, 2006
We are proposing an effective date of Spring 2006 because of the new course, ECE 115, which is
intended to be taken by freshman students in the Electrical Engineering and Computer
Engineering majors during their second semester. Therefore, it will be possible for new students
starting in the Fall 2005 semester to follow the proposed curriculum.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical
Engineering
The Electrical Engineering curriculum is concerned
with analysis and design of modern electronic
systems, devices, and signals for a broad range of
applications such as wireless or network
communication, electrical power and control and
multimedia information technology. The curriculum
provides a wide background in the fundamental
theory of electrical engineering and in the
mathematical and scientific tools necessary for an
electrical engineer to meet the current and future
challenges of a professional career. The field of
electrical engineering is currently evolving at a
rapid pace since it has a major role in the
accelerated growth of the technological world. This
requires the modern electrical engineer not only to
have a sound basis in the fundamental principles but
also to have the capacity to learn and assimilate
novel advances as soon as they materialize. These
qualities are anticipated in the curriculum, which
includes not only a sound theoretical background
but also offers a variety of courses that develop the
student’s ability to gain knowledge autonomously
and to combine it with contemporary design
techniques. Courses are in diverse areas such as
signal processing, power electronics,
communications, optical and electromagnetic
technologies, control systems, integrated circuits,
multimedia networks, and image analysis.
Same.
The curriculum includes both required and
elective courses. The required courses are in
engineering, mathematics and physics, and they
provide a wide backdrop in science and engineering.
The elective courses are more specialized and offer
a broad range of electrical engineering applications.
Each student is assigned a faculty advisor who
assists in the selection of the courses.
Same.
In addition to classroom experience, the electrical
engineering curriculum is planned also to provide
laboratory experience in electrical and electronic
circuits, electromagnetics, communication and
signal processing, controls, computers and digital
systems. The curriculum also incorporates design

projects in the student’s experience starting from the
freshman year and culminating in a capstone design
project in the senior year. The project requires the
students to undertake a significant group design that
enriches their knowledge in practical aspects of
engineering principles and methodologies. Most of
these projects solve realistic problems and the
results are presented in an exposition. The
curriculum also requires the students to acquire oral
and writing skills in expressing their professional
ideas and ethical norms. Opportunities are available
to participate in the activities of the student chapter
of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers (IEEE) and Eta Kappa Nu, the honor
society of electrical engineering.
An interest in robotics can be pursued by joining the
Engineering Design Team, a College of Engineering
student group.
