On June 8th Computer Engineering students presented their ECE 189 Capstone Senior Projects and were given best project awards from industry judges




Computer Engineering – Senior Computer Systems Project (ECE 189)

The CE Capstone Project gives Computer Engineering students the opportunity to put their education into practice. Students, working in small teams, design and engineer innovative hardware and software systems using techniques from robotics, distributed systems, circuit design, networking, and real-time systems to tackle problems and create a final “tangible” project.

Best Computer Engineering Project – Gestur: a virtual reality glove focused on obtaining a high degree of precision between the movements of the hand and how it is represented in virtual space, while simultaneously providing haptic feedback to emulate the sensation of touch
Team: Ryan Kaveh, Kyle Carson, Jon Young

Best Multidisciplinary Project – UCSB Hyperloop: a vehicle designed to zip through a vacuum tunnel at high speeds. The pod’s payload levitates with the use of four magnetic levitation engines, which reduces the vehicle’s drag.
Team: Yang Ren, Tristan Seroff, Asitha Kaduwela, Jesus Diera
