Vertically Integrated Project: Engineering for Social Innovation
This course is part of the Vertically Integrated Projects program, where students get credit for working on ongoing projects over multiple semesters. The Engineering for Social Innovation VIP team teaches sustainability through hands-on projects that serve the global community. We begin with the community assets and then partner with community members to design solutions that meet pressing needs. As an example, one class project will focus on designing shoes from the natural resources available in rural Kenya. Another project will focus on solar power for homes in rural Haiti.
Vertically Integrated Project: Configurable Computing and Embedded Systems
This course is part of the Vertically Integrated Projects program, a program where students get credit for working on ongoing projects over multiple semesters. This VIP course explores how embedded sensor and computing technology can be used to promote sustainability in a smart city framework. The goal is to allow citizens to assess and monitor environmental conditions so that they are empowered to make wise decisions, effect change, and foster healthier, nurturing communities.
ECE 3025 introduces electromagnetics to electrical engineering students. Students will learn how electromagnetics plays an integral role in solving biomedical challenges, enabling high-speed communications, and understanding concepts in other disciplines (such as fluidics). Students who do not specialize in electromagnetics will understand how the topics affect their chosen field of study, be it computer architecture or technology policy. Portions of this course will explore aspects of societal impact of electromagnetics and its application.
