Senior Design Showcase
The senior design showcase is open for all students who will be taking a senior design project in the future to see what the projects are all about and ask questions of the faculty members. Registration is required (click on the HERE button on the flyer)
Senior Design Projects
Do you have an idea for a Senior Design Project, or want to sponsor our students on a specific project?
Please contact us by submitting the Senior Design Project Proposal.
Senior Design Project Proposal
The EEC 134 course was created to satisfy the need for a senior project course for students who are interested in high-frequency electronic systems. The two-quarter-long course emphasizes system level design concepts and strives to provide a hands-on experience.
EEC 136 is a senior capstone design project course focused on electronic systems. Teams of 3-4 students typically combine sensors, a microcontroller, and a wireless interface to create a system that accomplishes a specific task. Projects vary from year to year and can be developed by the students, are suggested by faculty in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering or other departments, or by mentors from industry.
In EEC174 A/B, students will be introduced to challenges involved in designing and implementing components that are critical to data-driven and artificial intelligence (AI)-based control systems, including but not limited to data preprocessing, sensor fusion, computer vision (semantic segmentation, objection detection), machine learning (ML) based classification, and learning-based control systems.
The course involves the design, analysis, implementation, and testing of an application specific processor (ASP) using a modern, large-scale field programmable gate array (FPGA). The team is given a computationally intensive problem and is required to investigate algorithms for solving the problem that can be efficiently implemented on an FPGA.
The students will be provided with a radio-controlled car chassis and the rules for the contest. The objective of the project is to design and construct an autonomous race car that can negotiate a preset course in the shortest time possible.
For those teams who desire to explore projects beyond the Senior Design Project Course offerings, please submit a Senior Design Project Proposal Survey.
Our EEC193A/B course series focuses on Independent Senior Design Projects where students work with faculty members and have the opportunity to collaborate with industry and other academic departments.
Hawkeye Autonomous Inspection Vehicle
Due to the significant cost to complete visual inspections with pulse power technicians, an inspection robot will be designed to remotely complete visual pre-inspections to significantly reduce technician time spent on this task and increase the number of inspections. The mission is to improve National Ignition Facility (NIF) engineers and technicians, at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), a platform for remotely maintaining ideal operating conditions within the capacitor bays.
