An Undergraduate Computer Engineering Option for Electrical Engineering.
National Academy of Engineering, Washington, DC. Commission on Education.
This report is the result of a study, funded by the National Science Foundation, of a group constituted as the COSINE Task Force on Undergraduate Education in Computer Engineering in 1969. The group was formed in response to the growing demand for education in computer engineering and the limited opportunities for study in this area. Computer engineering is concerned with the organization, design, and utilization of digital processing systems as general purpose computers or as components of systems concerned with communication, control, measurement, or signal processing. The report is concerned with a new undergraduate option within electrical engineering which is called "computer engineering" and considers the need for such a program, a description of its content, and a plan of implementation. Included are recommended subjects, electives and prerequisites for computer engineering programs. Possible four year computer engineering curricula within electrical engineering are presented as developed by four universities: Carnegia-Mellon, Princeton, The University of Texas at Austin, and University of Hawaii.
