ESGP Professional Track
Gannon runs a two-year work-study program with local industry in Erie. The objective of the track is to present an academic program combined with application training on actual industrial problems to give students a targeted education complemented by hands-on, real-world development exposure. Students are selected for this track based on academic background, leadership skills and communication skills. The student is assigned a Gannon professor as a mentor while working at the industrial site.
The mentor advises the student on his academic work and guides the student on industrial engineering projects. The projects are carefully chosen to reinforce classroom work and to develop the students into outstanding engineers. In addition to the mentorship in technical areas, the professor also mentors the student in leadership skills, work and personal ethics, and communication skills that are needed in the industrial workplace. This track requires that the student work on these projects half-time during the school year and full-time during the summer. The students receive full tuition and a yearly stipend for their work. Students need to apply and be accepted separately for this program. The number of students in this track is dependent on availability of industrial sponsorship.
The students earn either an Electrical Engineering degree or an Embedded Software Engineering degree. There are two tracks for the program:
The Embedded Software track leads to an Embedded Software degree and the Systems and Modeling track leads to an Electrical Engineering degree. All students in the professional track must have equivalent background (academic or professional) in Automatic Control. Furthermore, all students in the Embedded Software track must have equivalent background in C++ and Data Structures. The recommended curriculum is as follows:

Angelica Duarte Moya-Simulation Module TeamAC CCA Locomotive Real-Time Virtual Simulator Project
- Simulation Module TeamSimulation Environment Synchronization
To analyze, organize and compare the existing simulation teams file structures being shared between both GE in Erie and EDDC (Bangalore, India). The ultimate goal is to have identical file structures and a system which can automatically detect additions and changes made to it, i.e. creation and/or modification of a file or directory.Virtual CCA Simulator
Lin Tun Wai- Function and Control TeamClock Sync Agent
Today, GE locomotives are equipped with many sophisticated systems (e.g. event recorder, diagnostic system, trip optimizer and Loco cam) These systems require real and accurate time information to timestamp incidents triggered by some changes in operation conditions, to timestamp monitor parameters of various subsystems, to generate an optimized trip plan and to timestamp a footage of video and audio record data for analysis and evidence.
