The University of Texas at Austin Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (UT ECE) hosted the Spring 2013 Senior Design Open House on Wednesday, April 24, 2013. UT ECE undergraduate seniors presented demonstrations of their projects spanning two semesters of work.
Companies partner with faculty and student teams, providing funding, equipment, industry expertise, and mentoring as the team works toward a successful outcome to the industry specced problem. Students are responsible for delivering a working prototype with documentation, a system design report, and two interim and one final oral presentations. Industry, student and faculty efforts culminate at the end of the course at the Senior Design Open House.UT ECE is deeply appreciative of our industrial collaborators, whose expertise and support makes these projects successful and meaningful. Industry project sponsors for the Spring 2013 projects include ARM, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Intel.
Apple, Inc. generously donated Apple products such as iPad Minis, iPod Nanos, Apple TVs, and iPod Touch devices as prizes for the top projects presented at the Open House
The first place team for Spring 2013 is the project Food Safety, developed by Ethan Schneider, Omer Neak, Alexander Hershey, Jennifer Davis and Matt Leaverton and sponsored by Texas Instruments. Prof. Nur Touba was their faculty advisor.
UT ECE congratulates the students, faculty and industry collaborators on the successful completion of the EE 464 coursework and project. Awards for the Senior Design Contest were presented by Dr. Gary Hallock on April 24 during the Spring Senior Design Open House.
