A select number of exceptionally well-qualified students at Old Dominion University may be admitted to the Linked Bachelor’s/Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering program while in their junior year of undergraduate studies. This program encourages admitted students to work closely with individual faculty members during the remainder of their undergraduate program, and allows them to complete graduate coursework while they are still undergraduates. They must maintain a GPA of 3.50 or better throughout their bachelor’s studies. Students interested in the linked program option should talk with their undergraduate advisor and the graduate program director to see if the program would be beneficial for them.
Engineering students with GPA >= 3.5 can apply for the ECE graduate program through a linked BS/PhD program
Students can take two graduate courses double counted for the BS degree and a graduate degree
No need for a formal application such as reference letters, essay, and GRE scores
A comprehensive introduction to the analysis of linear dynamical systems from an input-output and state space point of view. Concepts from linear algebra, numerical linear algebra and linear operator theory are used throughout. Some elements of state feedback design and state estimation are also covered. Prerequisites: MATH 307.
The course provides an overview of the fundamentals of solar cell technologies, design, and operation. The course is designed for graduate students in Engineering and Science interested in the field of alternative energy. The course objectives are to make sure each student: understands the various forms of alternative energies, understands solar cell design, understands solar cell operation, and acquires knowledge of the various solar cells technologies. The topics to be covered include: Alternative energies; Worldwide status of Photovoltaics; Solar irradiance; Review of semiconductor properties; Generation, recombination; Basic equations of device physics; p-n junction diodes; Ideal solar cells; Efficiency limits; Efficiency losses and measurements; Module fabrication; c-Si technology; classical; Photovoltaic systems; Design of stand-alone system; Residential PV systems. Prerequisites: Graduate standing in Engineering and Science.
Fundamental concepts of digital communication and information transmission: information sources and source coding; orthonormal expansions of signals, basis functions, and signal space concepts; digital modulation techniques including PAM, QAM, PSK and FSK; matched filters, demodulation and optimal detection of symbols and sequences; bandwidth; mathematical modeling of communication channels; channel capacity. Prerequisites: ECE 451/ECE 551 or equivalent or permission of the instructor.
