Industry-like two-semester, team-based design experience. Design and implement solutions to meet multiple realistic constraints; design to incorporate appropriate engineering standards. A specific, complex engineering design problem taken from problem definition to product realization and testing. Written and oral communication, professional development, project management, and working within a team. 5806: Implement and refine the project design from ECE 5805. Test, analyze, document, and deliver the resulting project outcomes. A final oral and written examination that satisfies the Master of Engineering (MEng) program requirements
Providing realistic solutions to open-ended design problems to meet customer needs within realistic constraints is the primary function of all engineering. This course sequence provides a graduate design experience in a team-based project. Within the context of a practical design experience, the course includes further development and application of professional engineering skills. This integrative, practical experience prepares graduate students to succeed as professional engineers. Due to interaction with a specified customer and the long-term design team premise, this sequence must be taken in a consecutive two semester sequence.
