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 Spring 2020 projects, see our Design Day booklet (booklet pdf) describes our students’ projects and coming soon to Electrical and Computer Engineering Projects.
