Enrollment Restrictions
Pass One open to Computer Science Engineering Majors only; Pass Two open to Computer Science and Computer Science Engineering Majors only.

Summary of Course Content
Under the supervision of a faculty member, each project team will research the solution to an open-ended interdisciplinary computer-science-related design problem, develop a precise problem statement, propose a design that solves the problem, implement a prototype design, validate the design and report on the results. Design problems may be proposed by the supervising faculty member, by a research program in another department, by an industrial partner, by government agencies, by non-profits, by outside individuals, or by the student team. Proposed design problems are approved by the instructor. Student projects must satisfy a rich set of real-world design constraints and relevant engineering standards. Deliverables will include a written design document, an implementation of the design, and an oral presentation of the results of the project.
