While it might seem that physiology and behavior are quite separate fields, the two interact extensively in living organisms to achieve common goals. By studying behavior and physiology from the perspectives of molecular and cellular biology, evolution, organ systems (neural, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, immune, etc.) and the environment, the concentration in physiology and behavior provides insight into how these aspects work together in a variety of ways. Students in this concentration also learn to apply principles from mathematics, chemistry and physics. Discoveries are made at the laboratory bench and in the field, and students in the concentration are encouraged to participate in research projects in the labs of our faculty members.</p> <p>This program is available as an accelerated degree program:</p> Fri, 11/16/2018 - 00:40 1342227 1342227 Computer Engineering, BS <p>Products of computer engineering touch nearly every part of our lives. They let us chat via webcams, send e-mails from cell phones, and withdraw cash from ATMs. But computer-based devices and information networks aren’t the only products computer engineers develop; they reconstruct genomes, design robots, and develop software to make businesses more efficient. That’s just the kind of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship that the School of Engineering encourages.</p> <p>Our BS program in Computer Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The program has a comprehensive analysis and design curriculum that provides an outstanding, cutting-edge education in computer systems with emphasis on hardware and software, The program incorporates the latest market and technology trends and combines the traditional disciplines of electronics, communications, control and computer programming with newer courses, such as Cyber Security, Nanoscale Circuit Design, Parallel Computers, Image Processing, Biomedical Instrumentation, Web Search Engines, Wireless Networks, Peer-to-Peer Networks, SoC (System-on-a-Chip), VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) and Game Development.</p> <p>Recognizing the need for well-rounded engineers, we also emphasize strong communication and interpersonal skills. Our students develop these skills not only through required courses in the humanities and social sciences but also during team projects in design classes. Sponsored research and affiliate programs at our Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications (CATT), and Offensive Security, Incident Response, and Internet Security Lab also put you in constant contact with alumni and instructors whose experience in the industry you can draw upon.</p> <p>Graduates of our program have gone on to design microchips and computer graphics, monitor and control industrial plants, and develop embedded hardware/software systems. They also occupy positions in manufacturing, research, financial services, health, and government, or create their own companies.</p> <p>With departmental permission, you may earn a single bachelor’s degree in electrical and computer engineering. This degree requires a minimum of 142 credits rather than the typical 128 required for individual bachelor’s degrees.</p> Fri, 11/16/2018 - 00:35 1344840 1344840 Bachelor of Medical Engineering (Honours) <p>At UON we train engineers capable of solving the world’s greatest challenges.
