The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) contains two focuses. The focus on Electrical Engineering teaches students in the fields of control systems, electromagnetics and non-destructive evaluation, microelectronics, electric power & energy systems, and the like. The Computer Engineering focus teaches in the fields of software systems, embedded systems, networking, information security, computer architecture, etc.

History
The Department of Electrical Engineering was formed in 1909 from the division of the Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering. In 1985 its name changed to Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. In 1995 it became the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Abstract

We present a sequential Bayesian method for dynamic estimation and prediction of local mean (shadow) powers from instantaneous signal powers in composite fading-shadowing wireless communication channels. We adopt a Nakagami-m fading model for the instantaneous signal powers and a first-order autoregressive [AR(1)] model for the shadow process in decibels. The proposed dynamic method approximates predictive shadow-power densities using a Gaussian distribution. We also derive Crame/spl acute/r-Rao bounds (CRBs) for stationary lognormal shadow powers and develop methods for estimating the AR model parameters. Numerical simulations demonstrate the performance of the proposed methods.
