Gannon University Graduate Catalog 2014-2015
Electrical and Computer Engineering 47 to organize and conduct research in the area of educational administration under the supervision of a faculty member, but independent of scheduled meetings and regular assignments. GEDU 750 Superintendent Mastery Internship 3 credits This course is the capstone leadership course in the superintendent preparation program. The internship is a 235- hour mastery level internship. The internship requires candidates to work in their districts to initiate specific activities that will provide leadership opportunities in the role of the superintendent as a strategic system leader. GEDU 751 Superintendent Leadership Mentor/Portfolio Advisor 1 credit The Leadership Cohort Mentor/Portfolio Advisor serves as the consistent point of contact and mentor throughout the candidate’s progression through the preparation program. The mentor also provides an orientation to the portfolio process. GUAP 520-597 Special Topics 3 credits GUEC 550-599 Special Topics 3 credits (ESL practicums are 1 credit each) GUSD 530-562 Special Topics 3 credits Electrical and Computer Engineering Director: Fong K. Mak, Ph.D., P.E. INTRODUCTION The world of electrical and computer engineering is an everchanging one. The advances over a new graduate’s working career of approximately 40 years will be phenomenal with applied undergraduate engineering courses slowly becoming obsolete. The most useful knowledge obtained from the undergraduate courses is the mathematics, engineering science, and humanities courses plus the acquired ability to attack and solve new problems in a forthright manner. Graduate school is the next step in a lifetime of learning for both new graduates and for those who have been out a few years and recognize the need for more education. The graduate program in ECE is designed to provide advanced studies for the graduate engineer who wishes to continue preparation for effective participation in the professions of electrical, software, and systems engineering. The program also provides continuing education in advanced subjects for the working engineer who acknowledges the need to stay abreast of the rapidly changing technological world. Emphasis is placed on the development of the engineer’s capacity for independent study and continued professional growth. PROGRAM OBJECTIVES: The program is designed to guide students to build technical competency, and effective communication and leadership skills. 1. Demonstrate professional ethics and personal values in daily and professional life that exercise informed literary and aesthetic judgments by leveraging diverse cultures and societies 2. Demonstrate teamwork and leadership qualities and/or attainment of leadership roles in a global work environment 3. Demonstrate technical competency in applying comprehensive engineering knowledge throughout their chosen profession DEGREES OFFERED The program offers both a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) degree and a Master of Science in Embedded Software Engineering (MSES) degree.
