WHAT'S IN HERE (Fall 2017)

ECE 196: Engineering Hands-On Group Project

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.  

ECE 188: LabVIEW Programming: Design and Applications

ECE 188 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.

Project in a Box

Project in a Box is a team 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 fellow 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, the high quality of their work, and the camaraderie that comes with working closely with an interdisciplinary team of skilled engineers.
