ECE Senior Design 2017

The ECE Senior Design Capstone course serves as an opportunity for students to execute the education they gained in the classroom to produce prototypes for real-world clients.  Student teams serve volunteer customers drawn from industry, government, small businesses, non-profits, schools, artists, faculty, and staff. ECE Senior Design projects have received numerous national awards and many have developed into start-up companies.
