For the undergraduate curriculum in computer engineering leading to the degree bachelor of science, see College of Engineering, Curricula. This curriculum is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECPE) Department at Iowa State University provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to learn electrical and computer engineering fundamentals, to study applications of the most recent advances in state-of-the-art technologies, and to prepare for the practice of computer engineering. The student-faculty interaction necessary to realize this opportunity occurs within an environment that is motivated by the principle that excellence in undergraduate education is enhanced by an integrated commitment to successful, long-term research and outreach programs.
The computer engineering curriculum offers emphasis areas in computer architecture, software engineering, information security, networking, concurrent systems and VLSI. Students may also take elective courses in control systems, electromagnetics, microelectronics, VLSI, power systems, and communications and signal processing.
The objective of the Computer Engineering program at ISU is that its graduates should demonstrate expertise, engagement, learning, leadership, and teamwork within five years after graduation.
Expertise: Graduates should establish peer-recognized expertise together with the ability to articulate that expertise and use it for problem solving in the analysis, design, and evaluation of computer and software systems, including system integration and implementation, using contemporary practices.
Engagement: Graduates should be engaged in the engineering profession, locally and globally, contributing to the development of the nation, the quality of life of its people, and the engineering profession through the ethical, competent, and creative practice of computer engineering in industry, academia, or the public sector, or graduates may use the program as a foundation for interdisciplinary careers in business, law, medicine, or public service.
Learning: Graduates should demonstrate sustained learning through graduate work or professional improvement opportunities and through self study, and they should demonstrate the ability to adapt in a constantly changing field.
Leadership: Graduates should exhibit leadership and initiative to advance professional and organizational goals, facilitate the achievements of others, and obtain results.
Teamwork: Graduates should demonstrate effective teaming and commitment to working with others of diverse cultural and interdiscipplinary backgrounds by applying engineering abilities,.
As a complement to the instructional activity, the ECPE Department provides opportunities for each student to have experience with broadening activities. Through the Cooperative Education and Internship Program, students have the opportunity to gain practical industry experience. See College of Engineering, Cooperative Programs. Students have the opportunity to participate in advanced research activities; and through international exchange programs, students learn about engineering practices in other parts of the world. Well qualified juniors and seniors in Computer Engineering who are interested in graduate study may apply for concurrent enrollment in the Graduate College to simultaneously pursue both B.S. and M.S. or B.S. and M.B.A. degrees. See Graduate Study for more information.
Students are required to prepare and to maintain a portfolio of their technical and non-technical skills. This portfolio is evaluated for student preparation during the student's curriculum planning process. Results of the evaluation are used to advise students of core strengths and weaknesses.
The department offers work for the degrees master of science and doctor of philosophy with major in computer engineering and minor work to students with other majors. Minor work for computer engineering majors is usually selected from a wide range of courses outside computer engineering.
The degree master of science with thesis is recommended for students who intend to continue toward the doctor of philosophy degree or to undertake a career in research and development. The nonthesis master of science degree requires a creative component.
The normal Prerequisite to major work in computer engineering is the completion of undergraduate work substantially equivalent to that required of computer engineering students at this university. It is possible for a student to qualify for graduate study in computer engineering even though the student's undergraduate or prior graduate training has been in a discipline other than computer engineering. Supporting work, if required, will depend on the student's background and area of research interest. Prospective students from a discipline other than computer engineering are required to submit, with the application for admission, a statement of the proposed area of graduate study.
The department requires submission of GRE general test scores by applicants from other countries. All students whose first language is not English and who have no U.S. degree must submit TOEFL examination scores. Ph.D. students must pass a department qualifying examination.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is a participating department in the interdepartmental M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Students interested in these programs may earn their degrees while working under an adviser in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is also a participating department in the interdepartmental Master of Science in Information Assurance program. Students interested in studying Information Assurance topics may earn a degree in Computer Engineering or in Information Assurance. (See catalog section on Information Assurance.)
Well qualified juniors and seniors in Computer Engineering who are interested in graduate study may apply for concurrent enrollment in the Graduate College to simultaneously pursue both B.S. and M.S. or B.S. and M.B.A. degrees. Under concurrent enrollment, students are eligible for assistantships and simultaneously take undergraduate and graduate courses. Details are available in the Student Services Office and on the department's web site.
