Catalog description: The main aim of this course is to involve a student, as a team member and under the supervision of an instructor, in a preferably interdisciplinary capstone design project. It consists in the implementation of a realistic, preferably interdisciplinary, engineering capstone project emphasizing engineering design principles on a computer engineering topic. The project, to be completed in CMSE 406, includes a technical survey, the problem description and formulation, and detailed preliminary project plan and design documentation for the solution of a realistic computer engineering problem. It is an extended exercise in the professional application of the skills and experience gained in the undergraduate program. Students form teams and each team chooses a topic suggested by the department lecturers at the beginning of the semester and is expected to present their progress in the form of reports and presentations at the end of a year.
