EMSE is now receiving submissions relating to topics on COVID-19. See “Journal Updates” below.

COVID-19 and impact on peer review
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Empirical Software Engineering provides a forum for applied software engineering research with a strong empirical component, and a venue for publishing empirical results relevant to both researchers and practitioners. Empirical studies presented here usually involve the collection and analysis of data and experience that can be used to characterize, evaluate and reveal relationships between software development deliverables, practices, and technologies. Over time, it is expected that such

What Is Computer Engineering? | Live Science

Computer engineering is the branch of engineering that integrates electronic engineering with computer sciences. Computer engineers design and develop computer systems and other technological devices. 

Computer pioneers

Some of the most prominent pioneers in computer hardware include:

  • Blaise Pascal, inventor of the mechanical calculator;
  • Charles Babbage, inventor of the Analytical Engine;
  • J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly, builders of ENIAC, and later UNIVAC, the first computer to be sold commercially;
  • Nicholas Metropolis, designer of the MANIAC I computer;
  • William Shockley and his team at Bell Labs, inventors of the transistor;
  • Seymour Cray, the “Father of Supercomputing”;
  • Steve Wozniak, designer of the Apple I and II personal computers and co-founder of Apple Computer along with Steve Jobs;
  • Adam Osborne, developer of the first portable computer, the Osborne 1; and
  • Douglas Engelbart and Bill English, co-inventors of the computer mouse and developers of hypertext, computer networks and the graphical user interface (GUI).

UH Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering |

Rose Faghih Wins NSF CAREER Award for MINDWATCH Proposal

 

Adapting Smartwatches to Improve Distance Learning and Health Harish Krishnamoorthy, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at UH, is creating a roadmap to boost the development of 5G networks.

There are big advantages to 5G networks. In addition to faster speeds, 5G offers greater bandwidth and network capacity, paving the way for a future of driverless cars, connected devices and more high-definition connections for virtual meetings and telemedicine. But the rollout in the United States and elsewhere has been stymied by gaps in available technology that could operate at the high frequencies required by 5G.

New $1M Hardware Project Would Boost 5G Networks The Cullen College of Engineering was recently ranked at No. 67 on the list of 2021 Best Graduate Schools By U.S. News & World Report.

On Tuesday, March 17, U.S. News & World Report released its updated 2021 rankings of best graduate engineering programs in the country. The UH Cullen College of Engineering has increased once again and is now rated No. 67. 

Cullen College Listed Among Best Engineering Graduate Schools of 2021 The UH/HCC Engineering Academy at Katy is a unique educational partnership between UH and HCC.

Over 100 individuals joined representatives from the University of Houston Cullen

What an exciting time to be a computer scientist! Connected, computational devices permeate every aspect of modern life. Computational thinking and programming have joined mathematics, reading, and writing as essential skills for every student regardless of major. Right now, our department faces a myriad of opportunities and challenges. I am delighted to report that our faculty, staff, students, and alumni are embracing the opportunities and overcoming the challenges as they provide leadership and innovative solutions across all of our missions of education, research, and outreach.

In education, we are meeting the ever-increasing interest in computer science from majors as well as non-majors at both the undergraduate and graduate levels by strategically expanding our offerings including our new Bachelor of Science in Computational Data Science degree program. At more than 1,600 students as of Fall 2019, our programs are now the largest in the College of Engineering and one of the

Engineering & Design | College of Science & Engineering

The Engineering & Design Department office is currently closed for the safety of students, staff, and faculty.  We are working remotely and are available to answer your questions.  Please call 360.650.3380 or send an email to [email protected]  We are available!  Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

 

The Engineering & Design Department, in the College of Science and Engineering, offers access to four Bachelor of Science degrees: Electrical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Plastics & Composites Engineering, and Industrial Design. These programs place an emphasis on practical laboratory experiences, in addition to theoretical course work. Each program’s curriculum is designed with input from strong industrial advisory committees to prepare students for professional positions in industry. It is important to know that admissions and advising information is specific to each major and students are encouraged to become familiar with the requirements.

THE DEPARTMENT OF
ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY

Offers programs that are based on applications of technology to solve engineering problems. Technology is hardware, software and techniques. Our programs introduce experiential learning activities in virtually every course, and emphasize hands-on laboratory activities with fewer instances requiring the abstract manipulation of mathematics. ETEC graduates are in high demand and work side-by-side with other engineering graduates in a variety of technical fields.

Join ETEC at UNT and pursue an undergraduate ETAC/ABET-accredited degree in Construction Engineering Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology, or a graduate M.S. degree in Engineering Technology. Here at UNT, engineering technology is the degree, but the career is engineering. These programs will help prepare you for the functional engineering tasks of design, re-design, technology implementation and evaluation, product and process improvement, and engineering system operation.

The Construction Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

What Is Software Engineering?

Software engineers and computer programmers both develop software applications needed by working computers. The difference between the two positions lies in the responsibilities and the approach to the job. Software engineers use well-defined scientific principles and procedures to deliver an efficient and reliable software product.

Software Engineering 

Software engineering treats the approach to developing software as a formal process much like that found in traditional engineering. Software engineers begin by analyzing user needs. They design software, deploy, test it for quality and maintain it. They instruct computer programmers how to write the code they need. Software engineers may or may not write any of the code themselves, but they need strong programming skills to communicate with the programmers and are frequently fluent in several programming languages.

Software engineers design and develop computer games, business applications, network control systems, and software operating systems. They are experts in the theory of computing
