Story Highlights

On December 8, students from ECE445: Senior Design Project Lab marked the end of their semester with an awards presentation. This course helps seniors make the transition into the industry through self-chosen team projects. Students have the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained from previous courses and experiences, develop teamwork and leadership skills, and gain in-depth practical knowledge in a topic they are passionate about. The students receive guidance and support from faculty and TAs. Professors Jonathan J Makela, Gary R Swenson, and Hao Zhu led the course this fall.
