Continuing the topic of the previous post on Mechatronics fourth year design projects, here is a list of projects completed by the graduating students in our Electrical and Computer Engineering programs. Again, these are the result of the group design experience that is required in all of our engineering programs. These projects are organized by “themes”, such as power systems, music/entertainment, software, sensors, and transportation (to name a few). The list is a nice example of the scope and breadth of things that students in the ECE programs get involved with. I assume that some of these projects are in collaboration with companies, although they aren’t explicitly identified.
If you would like more details on some of those projects, there is a book of “Abstracts” that gives a brief description about each project. Glancing through, I like the naval collision avoidance system (and the helicopter missle avoidance too), the “Watchdog” animal monitor for veterinarians, and the electrostatic speaker design project. But there are lots of others that seem quite interesting too.
