About

The incessant expansion of the Internet, Wireless Communications, Information Technology and Alternative Energy Technologies continues to fuel demand for electrical engineers and computer scientists. The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science program is offered by Catholic University of America.

Overview

Majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Catholic University of America thus offers excellent professional prospects and challenging career opportunities.

  • Pattern Recognition, Database Systems, and Software Development Statistical and visual data analysis; Bayesian decision theory; density estimation; classifiers; dimensionality reduction; feature extraction; feature selection; clustering; and database design. Applications include quantitative image analysis, dynamic computing environments, quality assurance in software, and bioinformatics.
  • High Speed Communications and NetworkingBroadband networks: Asynchronous Transfer Mode based networks; Optical Transport Networks: Architectures, protocol layers, protection and restoration; Wireless networks: Iterative (turbo) processing techniques; Network Security: Multimedia authentication; Applications: Multimedia over IP, multi-protocol over optical transport networks, optical internet;
  • Visualization and Computer GraphicsVisualization, computer graphics, medical image processing and analysis, minimally invasive image-guided system, image registration, and bioinformatics.
  • MicroOptics and BioImagingAcousto-optics, Optical information processing, hyperspectral imaging, molecular information storage, bio-electronics, bio-optics, computational and molecular imaging.
  • Signal and Image Processing Application of detection and estimation theory to broad areas of signal/image processing, radar tracking, chemical agent detection and classification, image sequence restoration, image motion detection and estimation.
  • Antennas and Electromagnetic Propagation Antenna design and development for different applications, such as wireless communications, satellite communications, and military platforms; Creating and using antenna design tools for different antennas such as reflectors and phased arrays; Implications of antenna performance on communication systems; Characteristics of wave propagation through different media, such as random media, layered media, etc.
  • Robotics and Artificial IntelligenceEnhance automation in motion planning and provide assistance in human-machine cooperative tasks in complex domains such as robotic-assisted surgery, robot manipulation, mobile robotics, and air-traffic control.
  • Network securityApply such tools as cryptography and statistics to solve security and privacy issues in wireless networks, and also to enhance network security, system and web security, networking and network management.
  • Heterogeneous and Biologically-inspired ArchitecturesDevelop innovative biologically-inspired computing architectures and expand the potential uses of reconfigurable systems, hardware acceleration, and heterogeneous architectures in general. It is paramount that a unified view of the hardware resources be provided independently of their type. This would facilitate ease-of-use, portability and hence the wide adoption of these promising technologies.
