Course objectiveThe purpose of the graduation project is for the student to have a major design experience based on the skills and knowledge acquired in earlier course work, incorporating multiple realistic constraints and appropriate engineering standards. In this second course in the two-course sequence, the student completes a project that involves designing a system, component, or process to meet desired needs. Based on the preliminary design with identified design choices and parameters at the end of ELE401, the student examines design choices, builds a software or hardware prototype, tests and evaluates the design choices and parameters, and improves the design through an iterative process.  
Learning outcomes
  1. Build a software or hardware prototype given a preliminary design
  2. Make design choices through an iterative process, interpreting the results and justifying the next step at each iteration
  3. Write a report which documents the design process
  4. Make final design decisions
  5. Present the design orally utilizing a poster
Course ContentIn this course, the student performs the following tasks for the design problem, all of which should be stated explicitly in the report to be prepared by the student by the end of the semester.

1. Build a software or hardware prototype given a preliminary design
2. Examine and test the design choices and parameters using the prototype
3. Interpret the effects of different choices and parameters
4. Update the design choices and parameters iteratively, making observations and interpretations at each iteration
5. Decide on a final design as a result of the iterative process
At the end of the course, the student should have a project report, a final prototype, and a poster presentation.
ReferencesDetermined by the student and the faculty member in charge.
