The explosive growth of cellular phones and systems has promulgated the notion that "wireless" is synonymous with pocket phones and pagers. However, wireless in the context of the WiCE's educational curriculum, refers to any system or device that relies on electromagnetic-wave propagation to perform one or more of its functions. This context includes such diverse applications as radar, global positioning, location, sensing, etc. as well as the broader class of communications systems such as satellites, point-to-point/multi-point, WLAN, Wireless WAN, etc. Courses provided by WiCE are aimed at providing students with a solid foundation in the broad array of disciplines that are common and fundamental to these disparate applications while allowing flexibility to delve into specific application areas of interest. Our core curriculum also emphasizes the fundamental theory and principles, system elements, and techniques that are common to all these applications. The goal of the WiCE's educational programs is to ensure that our graduates are well prepared to make immediate contributions professionally or to pursue advanced studies in their specific areas of interest.
