Embedded Software Engineering

  • Program Overview

    The world of electrical and computer engineering is an ever-changing one. The advances over a new graduate's working career of approximately 40 years will be phenomenal with applied undergraduate engineering courses slowly become obsolete. The most useful knowledge obtained from the undergraduate courses over the career are from the mathematics, engineering science, and humanities courses taken plus the acquired ability to attack new problems in a forthright manner. Graduate school is the next step in a lifetime of learning for both new graduates and for those who have been out a few years and recognize the need for more education.

    The goal of the program is to give an Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate the necessary education to be an effective embedded software/systems engineer. The student shall devise a curriculum with his/her advisor to pursue knowledge in computer hardware and software implementation strategies, software development, software quality measures, software design and testing techniques, microprocessors, digital system design and/ or hardware description languages. The student must complete at least 9 credits of Embedded Software Engineering program courses in system, software, hardware categories, and satisfy the project/thesis requirement in a topic related to Embedded Software Engineering.
