Course Contribution to Program Objectives
Students design and implement substantial hardware/software projects (1.3, 3.2, 4.3, 4.4, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6).
Students learn to communicate technical concepts and material effectively both orally and in writing (4.1).
Students learn to function effectively in teams to meet the design requirements of substantial projects (4.2).
Students are assessed on their ability to obtain efficient design solutions that incorporate engineering standards and realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, sustainability, manufacturability, ethical, health and safety, social and political.
The course grade depends on bi-weekly individual reports, midterm report, final report, individual and group presentations, and final poster session. To meet the literacy requirement, much more than 50 percent of the course grade is assigned based on written reports and class presentations.
