Senior Design Expo

Spring 2014 Senior Design Expo

Join us for this year's Expo on May 1, 2014, from 9:00 - noon!

For directions to the event, see Information for Visitors.

At the end of every year, an expo is held to demonstrate the projects that student teams have designed and built in the senior capstone course, ECEN 4610, as well as other senior lab courses such as ECEN 4517, photovoltaic power electronics lab, and ECEN 1400, the freshman projects course.

The expo is widely attended by faculty, students, parents, and many representatives from local companies, as well as by the ECEE Department Industrial Advisory Board members. The student teams demonstrate their projects and discuss the design work that went into the finished product.

Students in the senior capstone design course form teams of three to five members and follow an industrial-type process during the year while proposing, designing, building, and documenting their projects. They make formal presentations at a Preliminary Design Review and a Critical Design Review in the first semester. They are required to meet several milestones during the second semester, similar to industry requirements. Their grade in the course is dependent on their projects functioning as promised at the time of expo.
