Research and Design


Prepare yourself for the field

Design projects and hands-on experience are at the core of our department, whether it’s at the undergraduate or graduate level.

  • 2014 and 2015 ECE Capstone Projects  As an undergraduate engineering student, you will take part in the Design4Practice Program, which features courses that use real design  projects whenever possible to teach the process of innovation and design and simulate an engineering team environment. At the link above you can explore the websites created by the electrical engineering senior teams that will present at this year's Undergraduate Research and Design Symposium on April 24th.  This is an annual event that is open to the public.  This year's events include an all-university poster and creative arts exhibition in the Skydome along with oral presentations in the duBois Center of team projects from senior capstone design teams in engineering, computer science and environmental science. 
  • If you have an idea for a project that you would like a team of students to tackle for you, please see the project guidelines at the bottom of this page.  
  •  You can also check out all the senior engineering and computer science capstone project websites, some back as far as 1996.
  • Graduate students have a variety of research opportunities, including teaching and research assistantships and fellowships.
