ECE Focus Area: Signal and Imaging Processing (Computer)
Depending on the courses selected, completion of signal and image processing area coursework can provide additional understanding of topics in signal sampling and compression, detection and estimation, signal feature extraction, time-frequency analysis, speech, audio, image and video processing, machine learning and data mining, biomedical signals, sensor networks, and the signal processing aspects of communication systems and networks.
Signal and image processing engineers find employment in the telecommunication industry, the consumer electronics industry, the biomedical devices industry, the energy industry, the homeland security and national defense industry, and every other industry where information needs to be acquired and processed.
