Story Highlights

For many undergraduates, the ECE445: Senior Design Laboratory awards ceremony is a much-anticipated celebration. The course helps seniors bridge their knowledge from the classroom to industry with self-chosen team projects. The course emulates the day-to-day life of a practical engineering design environment, and students are guided by faculty and TAs. This fall, Professors Can Bayram, Xiaogang Chen, Arne FlifletMichael L Oelze, and Karl Edward Reinhard led the course.

Several area awards were presented, along with the Michelle and Alex Bratton Senior Design Awards and the "Best Use of Texas Instruments Hardware Award" sponsored by Texas Instruments.
