About this Course

A year-long capstone team design project that draws upon all of the student's previous experience, both technical and non-technical. Projects require students to investigate and apply concepts not covered in course work and to master engineering tools needed to complete the assigned task. Particular emphasis is placed upon project organization and management, principles of engineering design, oral and written communication, and professionalism and ethics. In ECEGR 4870, student teams are formed and industrially-sponsored design problems are assigned. Project proposals are written, critiqued, and presented. In ECEGR 4880 and 4890, problem solutions are developed and implemented, culminating in a formal presentation of results. In addition to regularly-scheduled lectures, students are expected to devote significant time to design team activities. The three courses must be taken as a continuous sequence. The Engineering Design sequence fulfills the interdisciplinary and synthesis requirements of the university core.
