Course Information
The ECE Senior Design experience is a two semester course (ECE 484\ECE485) designed to prepare students for the workplace through hands on experience in the design and development of a real world solution. Students learn about the product life cycle and about development processes utilizing system engineering and project management techniques. Students working in teams start with a problem statement, then define product requirements, evaluate possible solutions and perform design tradeoff analyses, then define a system solution, develop a project plan, and share a presentation of their system design and plan at a design review. Next students complete their detailed design and then build a working prototype and verify their solution. Students then present their prototype solutions at Engineering Design Day. Finally, students document their design process and design solution in a final report. The final report also includes a summary of lessons learned and possible future enhancements.
