Class Description (COSC/ECE 402)

COSC 401/402 and ECE 401/402 are the capstone design sequences that must be taken in sequence and are required of all computer science (COSC 401/402), electrical engineering (ECE 401/402), and computer engineering (ECE 401/402) majors. The capstone design sequence is designed to round out the student's education and to integrate and apply the software, system, and theoretical skills that have been acquired throughout the EE/CpE/COSC curriculum. The primary goal of COSC/ECE 401/402 is to learn best practices in technical design, project management, leadership, and teamwork by requiring teams of students to select a design task, and develop, test, and evaluation an appropriate solution.

Student Outcomes (SO x)

The Student Outcomes of the COSC/ECE 401/402 capstone design sequence include:

Organization of Teams and the Project Supervisor

Students will work in teams in the senior design sequence. In the second semester (COSC/ECE 402) each team will work with a project supervisor to specify, design and implement a project of mutual interest to the team members and the supervisor. The project supervisor should be viewed as the team's “customer” who wants to utilize the design and implementation the team produces. The project supervisor is also a mentor who can point to information sources the team members may find useful and will serve as a grader who evaluates the team's work product and approves each product (written or oral presentation materials) for submission to the faculty member in charge of the course for a grade. Each supervisor may be a University faculty, staff member, graduate student, or an individual from an organization external to the University who has received approval from the EECS Senior Design Committee to supervise capstone design teams.

Students will have regular meetings with the supervisor and submit written documents and deliver oral presentations as specified below, including a final report in written and oral form. It is expected that each student will have both technical and administrative roles in his or her team.

Multidisciplinary Projects and Projects that include non-EECS Team Members

Multidisciplinary projects (participants outside the department) and projects that include participants external to the University are encouraged but are not mandatory. It is recognized that the constraints of projects that include individuals from outside the EECS department may require adjustment of capstone design course requirements for the EECS students who participate. The instructor has the authority to agree to alternative requirements for these students so long as there are substantially equivalent required written, oral, and design experiences.

Intellectual Property

The vast majority of capstone design projects will be done as an “open source” such that all material and results from the project is openly available to the general public with no constraints form copyrights and patents.  But a small number of capstone design projects may lead to the creation by project team members of intellectual property that may have commercial value and that can be protected by patents or copyrights. Unless an alternate agreement is made and signed by all project participants, the University, and the University of Tennessee Research Foundation prior to commencement of work on a project, including faculty, staff, and individuals from outside the EECS department, and in the case of non-University students and employees, authorized representatives of their employers, the University’s policies on disclosure and protection of intellectual property, which are published and publically accessible on the University’s web sites, shall apply. It is recognized that alternate agreements may be essential in some cases, for example when an external entity such as a corporation is involved in a project and provides pre-existing intellectual property for the team’s use. However, all parties must recognize in advance that alternate agreements take time to prepare, review, and negotiate, and the students in the team and their project supervisor must allow sufficient time for this process in advance of commencement of work.

Prerequisites by Course

ECE 401: English 102 and either ECE 315 or ECE 351
ECE 402: ECE 401

COSC 401: English 102 and COSC 365
COSC 402: COSC 401

ECE 401/402 and COSC 401/402 must be taken in consecutive terms (Fall/Spring or Spring/Fall); they are not offered during the Summer term.

Note 1: Final Presentation Posters for 402 are to be displayed beginning at 11:00am and ending at 7:00PM. The poster will be displayed in the 2nd and 3rd floor atrium, with overflow space TBD if required. At least one representative from each team in ECE/COSC 402 must be present 11:00am - 7:00PM each day. Posters, including easels, backing boards, and any other supplies are to be removed at the end of each session and stored in the Senior Design Laboratory rooms. Poster Session: Poster Session: Presentations of Final Projects. Every student MUST talk with a person present with each poster in both 401 and 402 (approx. XX posters) and fill out an online rating form for each poster and presentation/interaction. The rating forms will be accessible using QR codes and short URLs printed on the posters.

Note 2: Posters must be 24” (horizontal) x 36”, printed flat/matte and laminated on both sides. No backing material is to be ordered (e.g., “foam core”) and charges for backing will not be paid by the department. Backing boards and push pins will be provided at the poster sessions. The EECS department is paying for these posters by direct bill, and this will be arranged with the UCopy manager, Mr. Chris Lowe. He will have a list of the teams, team leaders, and the team leaders' email addresses. More Information

 

* An Extremely Important Note: All reports and presentations listed with a (*) must be signed-off (approved) by the team’s project supervisor/customer prior to submission. Student teams must allow at least one week for project supervisor’s review of each report. Failure to abide by this requirement can result in failure of the course.

** ECE/COSC 402 will feature two aspects of Societal Impacts this semester. The first will be an individual essay where students may choose from the Individual Topics listed below. The second will be a team essay which students will then discuss during the societal impacts discussion classes (on 10/29). Teams will be discussing their own paper topics during these classes and attendance is required. Topics for team papers are also listed below. Individuals and teams may develop their own topics and submit them for approval by Dr. Dean, however this must be done no later than one week before the due date of the societal impacts essay.
