Welcome to your ECET 400 Capstone Project Research Guide.
I have designed this guide to help you with your project -- here you will find resources and strategies to find useful and authoritative information used by professional engineers in the field.
Your projects are too varied and interesting to include every possible resource here -- So, please consider me a member of your team -- get in touch by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or schedule an appointment at any stage of the process -- from finding a topic to chasing down technical information to formatting citations.
Consult this page regularly for updates and additional resources as your projects develop.
OVERVIEW: ECET 400 is the capstone project course for the ECET program. Students work as a group to design and develop a product. Students must study project management, concurrent engineering, proposal development, research, societal impact, market research, prototyping and testing. Students develop a formal project proposal, Gantt chart and design specifications for their project. Students apply technical knowledge to build and test their project. Documentation and demonstration of formal testing procedures, computer analysis, simulation, time and cost estimates and compliance with specifications is required. Students present a functioning prototype of the project to a design review board and other students enrolled in the course.
