Dr. Hai Ho, department chair of Computer Engineering, attended the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) - held in Las Vegas this January. The CES is one of the largest shows of its kind, with nearly 200,000 people in attendance. People come together to learn about new products and technologies coming to the consumer market. This year, the excitement centered around 5G, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, and mixed reality. This is where engineers, marketers, and consumers come together to witness the latest and greatest. The understanding of consumer electronics and how it is relevant to careers is important for computer engineering students to follow.


Fall 2018

November 26, 2018

Senio Design Proposal Presentations - CPE 4800

When: Monday Dec 3rd, 2018
Time: 10:00am - 11:00am
Location: Engineering Technology Center, Q-310

  • Team members: Matt Hammond, Shunji Kirino, and Harris Minear

    About the Project

    Pinnacle home controlPinnacle Home Control is a plug and play home energy saving system suite, that allows users to monitor and remotely control the energy efficiency of their home heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The system consists of a Smart Thermostat Hub and one or more wireless room air monitoring sensors. The Smart Thermostat Hub learns user preference patterns and home temperature profile to run the user's HVAC system. By lowering HVAC usage while the user is not home the PInnacle Home Control system increases home energy savings.

  • Team members: Luxemburger Holden, Hughes Joon, and Sylla Cheik

    About the Project

    3D desktop scannerThe 3D scanner is a reverse 3D printer. It takes a physical object and produces a 3D rendering that can be used to recreate the object. There is no need for an intermediate computer as the scanner outputs directly to a storage device.

CpE students, welcome back for fall 2018! Below are updates for the Department of Computer Engineering.

  • Seniors who plan to graduate in spring 2019 MUST take CpE 4800 - Senior Project Proposal, this fall 2018. This is because CpE capstone is a two-semester course, where CPE 4850 – Senior Design Project follows after CPE 4800.
  • The latest CpE curriculum flow chart is posted on the website, along with the 2-year course schedule. Please use these to plan your courses.
  • Juniors and seniors looking to take technical electives are recommended to consider the following courses. (See your facultyadvisor or department chair if you need to discuss course strategy.)
    • MTRE 4490/ CPE 4903 - Neural Networks and Machine Learning (prerequisite Engineering Standing)
    • SWE 3613 - Introduction to Software Engineering (prerequisite CpE 3000)
    • SWE 3623 - Software Systems Requirements (prerequisite CpE 3000)
    • CS 3304 - Data Structures (prerequisite CpE 3000)
    • EE 3701 - Signals and Systems
  • Dr. Ted Grosch has left KSU to return to industry. For those that had Dr. Grosch for faculty advisor, please see Dr. Ho until a new advisor is assigned.
  • The department has hired a limited-term faculty, Dr. Coskun Tekes. He will reside in Dr. Grosch’s former office, Q-250. Please stop by and say hi to our new faculty.
  • The application for the 2018 Georgia Engineering Foundation scholarship is now open. Apply for a chance to be awarded a $1000 to $5000 scholarship. Deadline to submit application is August 31, 2018.
  • Students planning to enroll in any 3000/4000 level engineering courses for the first time will require to have Engineering Standing, preferable a semester before so that they can register on time. Be advised that a student need not to wait until ALL courses (on list) are completed to fill out form. You can have a few courses left when apply for ES, as this will give you a head start.
