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.
