Kwik-E-Kart and SwitchStat win ECE best projects at Senior Capstone Project Presentation Day

June 7th, 2011

During the senior year, all computer engineering (CE) and some electrical and computer engineering (ECE) students take the two quarter Senior Computer Systems Project course also know as the Senior “Capstone” Project.

The Capstone project gives students the opportunity to put their education into practice. Students, working in small teams, design and engineer innovative hardware and software systems. At the end of the Spring quarter the final projects are presented at a full-day, industry-sponsored event where student groups publicly present their projects and participate in an outdoor lunchtime project demonstration and poster event.

This year’s best projects were awarded $500.00 each:

  • Kwik-E-Kart (ECE 189A/B): a smart shopping cart that “knows” what items are currently residing within it. Group members – Luis Garcia (project leader), Caleb Aguirre, Felipe Villegas, Sergio Sanchez
  • SwitchStat (ECE 188A/B): electrochemical multiplexing board. Group members – Alex Wolf, Max Pourshalchi, Jarred Hare
