Project in a Box

PIB

Project in a Box is a group of engineering students who love to create. They develop hands-on projects that are integrated into ECE curriculum in order to bring prototyping skills to students. Their efforts have resulted in courses like ECE 196 and ECE 188, and support independent learning with the PiB Engage Program. PiB members are characterized by their passionate for tinkering, high quality work, and the camaraderie that comes with working closely with an interdisciplinary team of skilled engineers.

ECE 144: LabVIEW Programming: Design and Applications

ECE 144

ECE 144 is an interactive LabVIEW programming course designed to teach students how to design and develop LabVIEW applications. Students work in teams to build prototypes from laser-cut and 3D printed parts, integrate sensors and actuators, and program using state-machine architecture in LabVIEW to form a complete system. They also have the opportunity to take the National Instruments Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) exam at the end of the class to validate their LabVIEW development skills and market themselves "LabView Certified" to prospective employers.

ECE 145AL: Acoustics Laboratory

ECE 145AL

Automated laboratory based on H-P GPIB controlled instruments. Software controlled data collection and analysis. Vibrations and waves in strings and bars of electromechanical systems and transducers. Transmissions, reflection, and scattering of sound waves in air and water. Aural and visual detection.

MAE/ECE 148: Autonomous Cars

MAE/ECE 148

Introduction to Autonomous Vehicles will incorporate engineering theory and good practices, industry relevant lectures, and practical application with the development of 1/10 scale autonomous cars that must perform on a simulated city track. Click here for more info: link

ECE 196: Engineering Hands-On Group Project

ECE 196

ECE 196 is a hands-on course designed for students to gain hands-on engineering experience through projects in team building environments. Projects were designed by students for students to help students expand their engineering toolbox. In the first five weeks, students work in groups of two to build projects developed by the PiB team. In the last five weeks of class, students work in teams of four to develop a new project from concept to presentation. In the course of one quarter, students work on a total of four projects that will test their ability to problem solve, adapt, and engineer.
