All ECE students must complete a senior project to meet graduation requirements.
Students may complete the project requirements with participation in one of the following:
- The Engineering Clinic Program: industry-sponsored projects with funding/scholarships,
- A project typically in a team of 2 or more under the supervision of an ECE advisor.
- An individual research thesis under the supervision of an ECE advisor.
Option 1. The Engineering Clinic Program
The Engineering Clinic Program puts students in specially-equipped laboratories to solve engineering challenges with industrial sponsors. A “Clinic Team” has 4-5 students. Each team has a $3,000 discretionary budget with an option to request more under certain circumstances.
Option 2. Senior Projects
Students may choose to complete a project they design themselves. Typically, this project will be completed in a team of two or more students. The completion of this project must be supervised by an ECE faculty member.
Option 3. Senior Thesis
Students may choose to complete an individual research thesis under the direction of a ECE faculty member. This option is primarily for students who are planning to pursue a graduate degree.
