ECE EEL 4915C - Electrical Engineering Senior Design Project II

Curriculum Designation: Required for EE majors.

Course Description: Senior students work in teams to propose, design, build, and test electrical engineering devices or systems under the direction of a faculty member. Open-ended design experience with a practical problem applies a broad spectrum of engineering knowledge. Periodic written reports and oral presentations and a final written report are required. The lecture material and texts provide instructions on general project execution, technical writing, and engineering economics.

Prerequisites: EEL 4911C

Textbooks/Required Material:

  • Salt and Rothery, Design for Electrical and Computer Engineers, John Wiley, 2002.
  • Kenny, A Handbook of Public Speaking for Scientists & Engineers, Institute of Physics Publishing, 2005

Course Objectives:

  1. Work in a multi-disciplinary team to successfully solve a technical problem.
  2. Identify the requirements of an engineering problem using a needs assessment.
  3. Develop a system level design using block diagrams and formulate an engineering design solution to solve the problem.
  4. Estimate the costs of a project and prepare a proposed budget.
  5. Prepare a project schedule and utilize project management tools to track a project's progress.
  6. Develop effective oral presentations and written documentation of a project.
  7. Recognize the impact of a project's engineering solutions on society.
  8. Demonstrate working design solutions and meet verifiable performance with prototype hardware or hardware and software.

Topics Covered:

  1. The System Design Process
  2. Requirements Analysis
  3. Project Management
  4. Team Dynamics
