Senior Design is a required three-term sequence for Senior students in the Electricial and Computer Engineering (ECE) department. Students form groups with 3-4 members and develop a project which serves as the capstone experience of their education at the Drexel University College of Engineering. Common topic areas include digitial signal processing, control systems, mirco electronics, telecommunications, computer networking, and power systems among others. At the conclusion of each term, teams prepare a written report and give an presentation. Senior Design is intended to simulate a professional work environment, provide experience working in a group on an open-ended problem, and refine skills in information-gathering and communication.
