Catalog Information

A requirement of graduation of this department is the completion and presentation of a Senior Design Project. Two courses, Senior Design I (2 credits) and Senior Design II (4 credits) serve this purpose. The objectives of Senior Design 1 are to select a work team and an appropriate project topic, do a literature search, prepare a work plan and write a preliminary report.

In Senior Design 2, the faculty supervisor and the student team meet regularly to discuss the students? progress. Upon completion, each student team submits a senior design report and makes a public presentation of their work at a faculty/student seminar. Senior Design Projects within our department are predominantly teamwork and exhibit a diversity of approaches: hardware-based, software-based, combinations of hardware and software, industrial applications and faculty research support. Some senior design projects have been part of contractual projects between our department and local companies. Others have led to conference presentations and publications.
