ECEN-52300 Engineering Projects and Research

This course covers the fundamentals of the two options for completing the culminating experience requirement for MSECE – project or research thesis. To prepare students for the project culminating experience, fundamentals of engineering project management and systems engineering are covered, including requirements analysis and development, design, integration and system validation and formal architecture modelling (e.g. SysML). Additionally, the course covers formal methods and processes for conducting engineering research, such as defining research problems, conducting literature search, collecting, analyzing and evaluating data, and presentation of research results. Fundamentals of technical writing for both project documentation and research dissemination are also covered.
