ES&C


The ES&C program was introduced in the
School of Engineering in
1995
.



It mainly
focuses

on developing skills for the
analysis, design and implementation of
computer
-
based engineering systems.



The program
evolved

in the last 17 years to
include several options:


Mechatronics


Embedded Systems


Computing


Robotics

5

Computer Engineering


The CE program was proposed in the School of
Engineering in
2010
.



Computer Engineering mainly focuses on the
design and organization of computer systems &
Embedded Systems.

Common Mistakes

Made by Students

There are countless mistakes students make. This
list of mistakes is not exhaustive!!

Source: IEEE Potentials July/August 2012


Not attending classes


Not buying the recommended textbook.


Not doing the homework.


Studying at the last minute.


Not setting priorities.


Not managing your time.


Aiming low.


Being overconfident.



32

Conclusion


Remember that the first term (or two)
is not a real reflection of your
capabilities



One skill is of primordial importance
to succeed in any postsecondary
program:



Time Management

Computer Engineers

Systems Engineers
