Description: Senior Design is a year-long course required of all BSEE-degree students. In order to fulfill the BSEE degree requirements, students must register for ELEC 494 for both fall and spring semesters of the same academic year. The course is taught in conjunction with the Senior Design courses in BioEngineering and in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science. Teams of students will design, construct, and document a prototype system to meet specifications determined by the team and the instructor. Senior design projects are the culmination of the Rice engineering experience. Cross-departmental projects are allowed and encouraged, and extensive use will be made of the Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen. Many projects will involve advisors from industrial affiliates. Throughout the year there will be several opportunities for presentations on the project. Top projects will be eligible for several awards from within Rice and outside the university, including some nation-wide competitions. Repeatable for Credit.
