"ECE 188A/B/C Senior Capstone Project Events: ME / EE Design Fair (June 3) & Design Showcase (June 9)"

ECE 188A/B/C, Senior Students

June 3rd (Friday), 11:00am
Engineering II Courtyard
ME / EE Design Fair and Year-End Celebration

June 9th (Thursday), 4:00pm
Campbell Hall
ME / EE Design Showcase

The Capstone Project gives ECE students the opportunity to put their education into practice. Students, working in small teams, design, build, and present a challenging engineering design project. The design challenges, of which each team selects one to tackle, are proposed and supported by UCSB faculty research groups or by industry. Projects typically involve design and implementation of both hardware and software systems.


ME / EE Design Fair and Year-End Celebration(Fri, June 3rd 11:00am-2:00pm in the Eng. II Courtyard): poster event and project demonstrations
ME / EE Design Showcase(Thu, June 9th 4:00pm-6:30pm in Campbell Hall): teams give a large-scale eight to 10 minute “TED Talk” on their projects
