Electrical and Computer Engineering

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

This dissertation will describe a technique which had been proven to provide a desirable high-speed interactive capability for manipulation of edge imagery. Since the technique is implemented through modification of circuit components rather than through the more customary software-based methods, it can be referred to as the hardware edge detection method. Since the technique has meaning only within the context of performance of an interactive image manipulation system, a rather complete description of such a system is also provided. This system has been developed by the author to exploit the potential of the basic technique. This dissertation will provide an extensive view of experimental results obtained with the system;After development of a set of baseline values, this dissertation will establish a foundation for understanding of the edge detection technique by providing a fairly detailed description of the image processing system in which the technique will be described and experimental results obtained on a wide variety of images will be given.
