Departmental Research Areas
Research fields of the Engineering Department include the design of wireless networks in the sense of developing novel and energy-aware applications. Research interests also include the design and development of strategies to optimize wireless networks based on cooperative networking principles. The research team is engaged in numerous research and development efforts at an international level, focusing on the design, development and validation of services and algorithms based on cooperative wireless networks and energy – aware systems, and in the areas of intelligent transportation systems (ITS), Personal Area Network systems, and energy–aware telecommunication applications.
Students need to complete a total of 40 courses including a Capstone Project (126 credits) to earn a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree with a major in Electrical Engineering. Full-time students may complete the program in 8 semesters, while part-time students will need between 5 and 8 years to complete their degree, depending on the number of courses taken each semester.
