During the two-semester Senior Design Lab, you will form teams of three to five members and follow an industrial-type process to propose, design, build and document your projects. You will make formal presentations at a Preliminary Design Review in the first semester and a Critical Design Review in the second semester, before showing off your finished project at the Senior Design Expo.
The expo is widely attended by faculty, students and parents. In addition, many local company representatives and the ECEE Industrial Advisory Board members attend the expo, giving you a chance to network with professional engineers. Teams demonstrate projects and discuss the design work that went into the finished product.
The expo also includes other senior lab courses such as Photovoltaic Power Electronics Lab and the Electronics Design Lab.
