ECE 480 is required of all electrical engineering or computer engineering majors at MSU.
It prepares students for the workplace, or for graduate school, including:
- Putting into practice the technical skills learned in the classroom, on industrially sponsored team projects, under faculty guidance, doing open-ended design, giving them experience in teamwork, project management, product life cycle management legal intellectual property, accommodation issues and entrepreneurship;
- Polishing their communication skills – individual and team – on proposals, reports, resumes, evaluations, posters, web pages, and oral presentations; and
- Requiring each student to complete four individual hardware/software laboratory assignments.
For a list of the Fall 2017 projects, see Electrical and Computer Engineering Projects.
