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

The Internet consists of a number of interconnected networks supporting communication among host computers using the Internet protocols. One of the most important constituents of the Internet is an IP router or a gateway. A router is connected to two or more networks, appearing to each of these networks as a connected host. If the processing capability of a router is further enhanced to support computation on parts of data contained in a datagram, some of the end host computation can be delegated to the routers that the data passes through. The instructions about how to do the processing itself could be provided by the end. This thesis defines a reliable transport layer protocol, Intermediate Processing Protocol (IPP), which is a set of rules and guidelines for processing within the Internet. The protocol design addresses provision for connection set up handshake, acknowledgement of data received, router reservation policy, intermediate processing, buffering and retransmission of data, flow control, congestion control, ordered delivery of data and security issues.
