Justification for new course
,

revision, unbanking, or renumbering:

Based on inputs from
the
members of the Engineering Industry Advisory Board and the eastern
Carolina region employers, the Department of Engineering plans to launch an Electrical
Engineering
c
oncentration

(EE
NG
)
. This decision agrees with the university mission to enhance
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and meets needs of many students.
This proposal is approved by the Engineering faculty.


Controls is a key area in the electrical engine
ering

field. The engineering core exposes students
in all concentrations with feedback control system analysis and design. For students in the EE
concentration, a
solider

grasp of controls is needed.

This

Advanced Control course will be one of
the essenti
al concentration courses. This course is designed to cover methods for digital control
design and analysis and their mathematical background like discrete math and z
-
transforms.

Statements of Support:

(Please attach a memorandum

which
addresses the
budgetary and staff impact of this proposal.)




Current staff is adequate

Additional
s
taff is needed

(describe needs below)
:

As part of the current strategic plan for
the program, we anticipate continued growth in student enrollment to near 700 majors by 2015
-

2016 and approximately 32 faculty from our current base of 20. This course is within the
proposed electrical engineeri
ng concentration. Offering all of the courses within the electrical
engineering concentration will require one equivalent faculty member out of the planned increase.




Current facilities are adequate

X

Additional
f
acilities are needed

(describe needs below)
:

This course is within the proposed
electrical engineering concentration. Our laboratory facilities, which already support classes for
circuits, controls, bio processing and biomedical instrumentation, are capable with minor
additi
onal investment (less than $45,000 during 2011
-

2013) to support this concentration.
