Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering 06-88-400 Capstone Design Project Dr. M. Sid-Ahmed, Course Coordinator Winter-Summer 2012 Revised as of October 5, 2011 06-88-400 is a two semester course You must register for this course in both the Winter and Summer semesters. Capstone Design is described by CEAB: The engineering curriculum must culminate in a significant design experience which is based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier course work and which preferably gives students an exposure to the concepts of team work and project management. A research project may be interpreted as engineering design provided it can be clearly shown that the elements of design, as noted in the definition, are fulfilled of the project. Some of these elements of design are stated as: Engineering design integrates mathematics, basic sciences, engineering sciences and complementary studies in developing elements, systems and processes to meet specific needs. It is a creative, iterative and often open-ended process subject to constraints which may be governed by standards or legislation to varying degrees depending upon the discipline. These constraints may relate to economic, health, safety, environmental, social or other pertinent inter-disciplinary factors. The capstone design course will be handled as follows: In the first term you will receive weekly lectures (Fridays) for 50 minutes per lecture (10:00 am to 10:50 am). The lectures will be delivered by faculty members and technologists. These lectures are intended to give you an idea of the areas of expertise we have and to allow you to cultivate ideas that can assist you in completing your project. Presentations given by our technologists will provide you with a familiarity of our resources. The 2012 Capstone Projects are posted on the Departmental website and are taken on a first-come, first- serve basis by email to <[email protected]>. If there is a project you would like to work on, but is full, send an email to <[email protected]> to inform the Capstone Committee of the capstone project title(s) you are interested in. During the first few lectures in the Winter 2012 semester, you will have the option to switch to a new project if you want to, based on availability and your interest. On January 27, you are required to submit your first report outlining the project title, abstract and references. By the end of the first term, you will be required to present your project and submit your

The second term should be spent on designing, building the project and writing the final report. Important Notes regarding Capstone No grades will be assigned to projects that have not been completed. Your Supervisor and Committee Members will need to see your complete design approach, circuit design and/or block diagram, the final circuit built on proto-boards or PCB and a working model. Grades will be assigned as indicated in the first seminar. Supervisors will assign a failing grade if the group has not demonstrated their ability to design

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
