Welcome to Wichita State University’s EE Senior Design Fall 2011/Spring 2012 class blog. EE Senior Design is a two-hour two-semester course specifically designed for College of Engineering seniors in their last year at Wichita State University. In the course, students in interdisciplinary teams of typically 4 students create a product or improve an existing prodct.
All class assignments will go on this class blog. EE Senior Design also runs a forum for chatter of all types and sizes.
For Second semester, students have divided into teams for their final projects. Each team maintains its own blog. During the semester, the blogs help to facilitate communication and collaboration. At the end of the semester, the blog will be the team’s final report.
