Drexel’s Electrical Engineering undergraduate program has three different tracks/concentrations that students can choose from which lead to a Bachelor of Science degree;
- Telecommunications and Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
Telecommunications and DSP
Telecommunications and DSP are two of the fastest-growing fields of electrical engineering. The Telecommunications/DSP track prepares students for mastery of fundamental and applied knowledge in the theory and the technology of the transmission and processing of information-bearing signals such as voice, audio, data, images and video. The courses include topics in electromagnetic propagation, communication devices and media, signal processing, modulation, and coding.
The Electronics track constitutes the study of electronic and optical semiconductor devices; analog and digital electronic circuits; and generation, transmission, and reception of information both in optical and microwave frequency ranges and guided or free-space conditions.
The Electrical Engineering track combines topics in power engineering, controls and robotics. The electrical engineering courses include the study of electromagnetic energy conversion, smart power devices and interconnected power system technology. The controls and robotics courses cover a broad array of topics, including data acquisition, sensing, actuation, modeling of dynamic systems, planning and optimization, decision and estimation, adaptation and machine learning, motors, and microcontrollers.
The Electrical Engineering minor is designed to provide other engineering majors or students from other disciplines an introduction to the wide-ranging content of the electrical engineering major. The minor consists of a minimum of eight ECE courses resulting in 26 credits. There are five required courses and an additional 12 credits of elective courses.
