Boston University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is looking for real world engineering challenges to give undergraduate seniors for their 2012 Senior Design project.

Each year, the ECE Department seeks projects from industry, government, non-profits, small businesses, and individuals to present to students as part of a year-long, team-based course. Students create a plan for solving the problem, design a solution, test a product, and present a prototype.

Senior design projects give students a chance to work on a task that expands upon traditional classroom assignments and prepares them for future employment and real-world challenges.

Last May, seniors presented their work to ECE professors, alumni, and industry engineers. The top prize was awarded to “Team MINSensory,” who worked with Professor Ronald Knepper (ECE) to design a complete interface suite that allows for real-time collection, analysis, and visualization of neural signals using the Multiple-Input Neural Sensor Integrated Circuit (MINS IC).

Take a look at examples of other projects from last year.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer customer, have any questions about the project, or would like to discuss potential ideas, please email Associate Professor of the Practice Alan Pisano (ECE) at apisano@bu.edu.

Ideally, project descriptions will be given to students at the beginning of September.
