Catalog Description: A course in design methodology as applied to a particular problem in electrical engineering. For a given project, students will integrate their formal course work with the use of computer-aided tools to design, construct, evaluate, and document a prototype system.

Topics Covered:
• Design process
• Project management
• Testing and evaluation
• Engineering ethics
• Reports and presentations as part of design process

Textbook: (Required) Design for Electrical and Computer Engineering: Theory, Concepts, and Practice, Ralph M. Ford & Chris S. Coulston, McGraw-Hill Higher Education, 2007

Computer usage: Computer-aided tools (e.g., MATLAB, C language, PSpice) and microcontrollers as selected by students
