ELE-250 - Project Research and Development

2 credits

The purpose of this course is two-fold. First, students will investigate key aspects of project development: research, developing design specs, project scheduling, preliminary design/simulation, component selection, construction considerations, prototype development, design verification & testing and design improvement and performance monitoring. Students will investigate these ideas by way of a project example. The second goal for this course is to allow students to complete the first several stages of their capstone senior project design. Students will use the concepts presented in the beginning of the course to select, spec and order the components needed for their senior project in ELE-265. Only students expecting to graduate in the following Spring should take this course.
