ELET 305C            Design Project Preparation

Contains the background material and preparation necessary for ELET 306C and consists of three integrated learning objectives, which are studied concurrently. Objective one will be to document, design, and build a team project that will use a typical industry project management process to complete a project assigned by the instructor. Product design documents will be created to guide this objective. Objective two covers the mechanics of designing and fabricating printed circuit boards. This includes the use of EDA tools. The tools used include but are not limited to schematic capture and printed circuit board layout. Printed circuit boards will be fabricated that encompass both traditional through-hole components and modern surface-mount technologies. An overview of industry standards of workmanship and safety are included. In objective three, the student selects a senior project to be completed in ELET 306C, obtains approval for that project, and develops a detailed project definition. Much latitude is given in selecting a project. Projects may be undertaken individually or as teams. They may be internal or collaborative with industry. The project may involve developing a specific circuit or a more general exposure in an appropriate industrial environment. Ultimately, the project must meet the requirements outlined in EL 306 and receive final approval from the instructor. The definition will serve as a guideline for the next phase of the senior project. (Prerequisites: ELET 102C, ELET 110C, ELET 115C, and ENGL 125C or ENGL 120C; corequisite: ELET 144C, and ELET 210C; or permission of the department chair)

Lecture Hours: 1    Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 5    Credit Hours: 3

 

ELET 306C            Senior Design Project

The culmination of two years of theoretical study in the electronics engineering field; is intended to exercise and enhance the student’s practical competency in that field. When combined with its preparation course (ELET 305C), it prepares each student to each student be involved with design, development, implementation, and testing of a curriculum-related design as required by the project definition developed by the student in ELET 305C. An accurate record of time invested is to be kept, all work is to be documented in a logbook, and regular progress reports are to be submitted. As the project nears completion, a technical write-up will be required as well as a formal presentation of the project. (Prerequisite: ELET 305C, ELET 144C, ELET 210C; corequisites: ELET 215C; or permission of the department chair)
