Systems Engineering encompasses the disciplines of communications, signal processing and automatic control. Course offerings cover both the modern theory and contemporary applications to prototype systems. Programs in this study area provide abroad foundation for work in communication networks, digital signal processing, robust control and identification, system optimization and stability, signal detection, computer based process control, neural networks, array processing, coding and cryptography. These topics interface with other programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, to provide many opportunities for interdisciplinary study.
