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

Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) are a rapidly growing and expanding field. BCIs are capable of creating an interface between the human brain and a computer. This paper lays out the required background knowledge to work with a BCI. It attempts to answer the question ”Can a BCI be used to control a set of real work objects?”. To do so, common methods of BCI were analyzed to create a reliable BCI. Then, an architecture was designed to allow for this BCI to be easily expanded to include functionality with as many devices as possible. The architecture developed as well as the logic and rationale behind it is laid out within this paper.
