EE411: Design I for Electrical and Computer Engineers
This is the first semester of the two-semester capstone design sequence for electrical engineering majors and computer engineering majors (2-2-3). Prereq: 1/C standing [fall]
Students shall be able to demonstrate the ability to:
- Starting from an open problem statement, formulate design objectives and then engineering requirements.
- Generate and evaluate alternative solutions in order to select the best reasoned approach for solving a technical problem.
- Formulate a project plan, including the work breakdown structure and budget.
- Prepare a well-written project proposal that explains the project and lays the foundation for its pursuit.
- Begin the proposed project by prototyping, characterizing, modeling and/or simulating some portion of the final design.
- Properly record and report project work in a lab notebook.
- Apply ethical theory to analyze ethical problems related to engineering in order to arrive at the best solution.
- Function effectively in the professional engineering environment.
