In addition to the Electrical and Computer Engineering capstone projects, an additional Electrical and Computer Engineering class displays their work at Design Day:
ECE 101 is an elective course introducing freshmen students to Electrical and Computer Engineering through a series of innovative hands-on laboratory experiments linked to new research and teaching areas. These experiments relate to computer switches, mind-control robots, program LEGO robot using C-code (MSP430 microcontrollers) and NXT controllers, pH measurement using NXT sensors, maple-seed robotic fliers (MRF) with onboard electronics, location of bio-molecules using RFID, renewable energy resources using windmill and solar cells, and nanotechnology study using a LEGO gear-train.
ECE 410: Very large scale integration (VLSI) design is an elective course in which student teams are challenged to design (from schematic to physical layout and verification) a programmable Finite-Impulse-Response (FIR) filter (with 16 to 64 taps). The FIR filter architecture is designed into an IC chip-die guided by the performance metrics.
ECE 101 and ECE 410 projects will be exhibited on the second floor of the Engineering Building in the 2200 Hallway from 9:00 until noon. For more information on this term’s projects.
