State University of New York Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome, located in Central New York, is one of the 64 campuses of the State University of New York System. It was founded in 1966, primarily to be an upper division transfer college for students who have completed their first two years of higher education at a community college. The department of electrical engineering technology is a part of the School of Information Systems and Engineering Technology and offers Bachelor s degree programs in electrical engineering technology, computer engineering technology, and photonics. A Master of Science in Advanced Technology is jointly offered by the departments of electrical, mechanical and industrial engineering technologies.
The SUNY Institute s electrical engineering technology curriculum includes theoretical issues, but our objective is to teach students to use current, state of the art equipment and emerging technologies to solve practical design and application problems. State of the art equipment and laboratories are critical for the electrical engineering technology curriculum because of the strong hands-on emphasis. The department of electrical engineering technology has been offering number of high level courses in the areas of fiber optics, data communications & computer networking, digital image processing & vision and data compression & multimedia technology and optical communications. Because of hands-on nature of the program each course has an assigned laboratory. Considering the rapid rate at which electrical engineering technology and equipment are changing, the existing equipment needs to be updated and improved to adequately prepare the students.
The purpose of this paper is to present the results of NSF-sponsored Instrumentation and Laboratory (ILI) program for equipment to link the electrical department s image processing & vision lab and fiber optic communications lab by an optical network. The proposal for the grant was submitted in 1993 and it was funded in 1994. The enhanced laboratory facilities help advance instruction for all undergraduate students who enroll in the courses mentioned above as well as majors in electrical engineering technology, computer engineering technology and photonics.
