The general goal of the two-semester senior design project course is to provide students with technical design experience for appropriate careers through systematic exercising of design projects in a carefully controlled academic environment. Students are encouraged to collaborate on design projects with industry, government agencies, university departments, or community institutions.

A design project is often thought of as a constructive problem-solving process. In general, students learn about the design by experiencing several interdependent and overlapping stages, including

  1. Project Identification and Inception

  2. Project Planning

  3. Iterative Design

  4. Implementation

  5. System Integration and Beta Testing

  6. Documentation and Report Writing

  7. Project Presentation/Demonstration

The website is constantly updated to support this course and includes a course syllabus with course description and outcomes, assessment forms, design reference materials (design practices, system emulation/simulation, system prototyping, system integration, system testing and validation, system evaluation and safety, online design magazines, design libraries, ethics, design research, etc), a discussion page for posting questions, E-mail, and samples of previous senior design project presentations.
