EE 408 - Senior Design Project II

2 lecture hours 3 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This is a continuation of EE Senior Design. In the first part of the course, the teams finalize their design, producing a Final Design Report that demonstrates an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability. This is the complete “paper design” of their project including detailed block diagrams and schematics. Following that, the teams build all major subsystems. At the end of EE 408, they write and execute subsystem test plans and present the status of their project in an oral presentation. Each team member reports on their team roles and evaluates their team performance. (prereq: successful completion of EE 407  in fall term of same academic year)
