Course Description:

This is the capstone project course for Computer Engineering majors. In this course the student completes the project that was chosen and defined by the students in ECE 3992. The project must be fully documented. The final results are presented, a writeup is delivered in a format suitable for a conference publication, and the working project is demonstrated.

There are several major goals for this project, which will prepare the students for industry or graduate work:

  1. Propose and complete a significant engineering project
  2. Project organization, planning, leadership, and teamwork skills
  3. Develop proposal and presentation skills, and paper writing skills
