    How It Works

    At the start of the semester, students review all project proposals, submit their preferences and skill sets, and are matched to a project. Each team is also matched with a faculty advisor.

    Capstone Design Overview

    All Texas ECE senior students complete a yearlong capstone design course sequence, solving open-ended problems in groups of 5-7 students, from defining problem statements to building a prototype.
    During the length of the project the team will:
    • Gather all the necessary specifications and requirements for the project.
    • Research the project and work on preliminary designs.
    • Write a proposal for the company and deliver a preliminary system design report.
