ELE 700/800, COE 700/800, BME 700/800 Design Project

This course provides the student with a significant experience in self-directed learning. Project topics are provided from which the students select a topic. The topic selection information search, designs and component sourcing are completed as part of the Fall term course. The student individually or in a group, where the topic is a group project, will research the topic, design, implement and make operational a design of currency in the fields of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Professional guidance is provided by faculty on a weekly basis in the laboratory. The completed project must be demonstrated operational by the last week of the term. A final bound project report that conforms to professional guidelines is required. The students must demonstrate their working project at an Open House in April.

Labs: ENG 306, ENG 307

Engineering Support: Jim Koch ENG418 ex 6118

General information:

Safety Note: Scope Ground and Power circuits.

  • When measuring the outputs of a power circuit (IGBT module, motor driver circuit, H bridge etc.) on an oscilloscope one should always use a differential scope probe. The ground of the scope is connected to earth ground, which means it is also connected to the ground of the Function Generator's outputs and the serial/USB/printer cable of the PC, and any device that you plug in that has a 3 pin grounded line cord (eg. your laptop), that is connected to your circuit. Placing the ground of a regular scope probe in the circuit any where other than ground causes a short circuit which will damage the test equipment and your circuit. Differential scope probes are available for loan from my office ENG418.
