Spring 2013 Senior Design Projects

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.

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.
