IR Scout, Autoponix, String Cheese, and NP Compete teams given awards at the 2014 Senior Capstone Project Presentation event held on June 5th, 2014 in the Engineering Science Building and Courtyard.
During their senior year, all Computer Engineering (ECE & CS 189A/B) and some Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE 188A/B) students take a two quarter Senior 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.
