The capstone senior design course sequence is the culmination of the undergraduate curriculum. Student teams serve volunteer customers drawn from industry, government, small businesses, non-profits, schools, artists, faculty, and staff. Senior design provides students with: Technical, communication, personal, and team skills needed for successful design in electrical and computer engineering. Knowledge of specifications and standards, information collection, design strategies, modeling, computer-aided design, optimization, system design, failure, reliability, and human factors. Proficiency in oral and written communication of technical information. Understanding of team dynamics and ethical issues in design. Experience in completing a design project for a small-scale electrical or computer system.
