Fall 2012 Senior Design Projects

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The University of Texas at Austin Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (UT ECE), a top-ranked department, provides a unique opportunity and a supportive environment for academic/industry partnership through our Senior Design Projects. This capstone coursework provides academic excellence as well as key corporate benefits as teams focus on solving open-ended problems submitted by industrial collaborators.

Companies partner with faculty and student teams, providing funding, equipment, industry expertise, and mentoring as the team works toward a successful outcome to the 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.

Industry sponsors for projects beginning in Fall 2012 include ARM, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Schlumberger, and Intel.

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. Michael Becker on November 28, 2012 during the Fall Senior Design Open House.

UT ECE is deeply appreciative of our industrial collaborators, whose expertise and support makes these projects successful and meaningful.
