EE 409 - Senior Design Project III

2 lecture hours 3 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This is a continuation of the EE design project defined by each design team in EE 407  and designed in EE 408 . The design is built, tested, modified, retested and completely documented in this final course of the senior design sequence. It is expected that each team will have a working prototype to demonstrate by the end of this course. Teams prepare a test plan and conduct a compliance test comparing system performance to specifications. (prereq: successful completion of EE 408  in winter term of same academic year)
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Work as part of a design team to completely design, prototype, and test a design
  • Demonstrate the iterative nature of design
  • Evaluate their behavior on their design team in the context of professional and ethical responsibility
  • Utilize laboratory instrumentation for debugging and testing a prototype
  • Prepare a compliance test plan and conduct the compliance test
  • Prepare a complete project report documenting the design, prototype, and testing
  • Present the project results to faculty and peers in a trade show setting
  • Conduct a design review

Prerequisites by Topic
