The senior design course is a two term sequence in electrical and systems engineering design.
During the first semester of ESE Senior Design (1.0 cu) work will focus on building a lean prototype, plan alternative strategies, and determination (experimental or by simulation) of quantities necessary for a detailed design in the following semester.
By the end of Fall semester (ESE450), an initial prototype of the hardware or the software system will be demonstrated in a demo day in December. This demo will include drawings, circuit diagrams, budget, and time schedule for project completion in spring semester (ESE451).
During the second semester (1.0 cu), work will be directed to improvise and build on the lean version of the prototype. A final presentation and report will be made of the project. Periodic project reviews and brief presentations during the two semesters.
Read more ( Course Outcome) about the skills, knowledge, and behavior that students are expected to have attained by the end of the sequence.
We strongly recommend that Juniors start looking for projects in the spring semester. Potential Senior Design Projects are listed here and on the same page, you will also find projects listed from last year.
