Course Objective: 

This course is the first part of a two-semester course program (EE 491 and EE 492) that aims to provide senior students an integrative real-life experience to effectively design, simulate, implement and test electrical or electronic systems. In EE 491, students define an engineering problem and develop a conceptual design, as well as gain an understanding of project management methodology. In EE 492, students realize a product from conceptual design to working system. A student team supervised by faculty member develops a proposal to produce a solution for a real-life problem, and obtains experience in problem definition, solving, modeling, simulation, and cost analysis. Students are required to submit periodic reports and oral presentations to demonstrate their communication skills. Faculty members and/or invited speakers from industry/academia teach the essential components of project management (such as project management, design tools, simulation standards, quality concepts, ethics, etc) through weekly lectures.

Design Content: 

System design course
