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

An associative memory for a relational database management system, with content addressing capability, is studied and analyzed. The system utilizes one level of indexing and the database is clustered. The logic-per-track approach is used for parallel processing of the data in a cylinder. The attributes and the tuples are allowed to have an arbitrary length and no encoding algorithm is used. The performance of the system is analyzed and it is demonstrated to have superior performance in comparison to software-based systems. The cost effectiveness of the system is also shown.
