Electrical & Computer Engineering Prism VentureWorks

Prize & Winners

The Prism VentureWorks Prizes ($1,500, $1,000, and $500, respectively), are awarded each semester to the most outstanding teams in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Senior Capstone Design Course, as judged by a panel of engineers from industry.  A team with members from both ECE and another engineering major (mechanical engineering, for example) is also eligible, if the team’s project is administered through ECE 480.  The prizes are sponsored by Prism VentureWorks, a Boston-based venture capital firm, and Mr. William Seifert, an ECE alumnus, who is a partner in that firm.  The faculty and students of Electrical and Computer Engineering are very grateful for this generous support.
