ECE 49600 - Electrical and Computer Engineering Projects

Variable Credit

Counts as:
CMPE Special Content Elective
EE Elective - Special Content
EE Elective - Adv Level Lab

Normally Offered: Each Fall, Spring, Summer

Requisites:
(ECE 20007 or ECE 20700) and (ECE 20008 or ECE 20800) and ECE 27000 and permission of instructor

Catalog Description:
Electrical Engineering credit: This is a Special Content course. No more than 6 credits of Special Content type courses may apply towards the ECE Requirements of the BSEE degree. Excess hours may be used as Complementary Electives. This is a repeatable course and may be used to satisfy 2 of the 3 required Advanced Laboratory courses provided the student has completed 2 of the 3 ECE 20000 level lab courses ECE 20700, 20800, and 27000 and is concurrently enrolled in the third ECE 20000 level lab courses. The supervising instructor must be an ECE faculty member.

Computer Engineering credit: This is a Special Content course. No more than 3 credits of Special Content type courses may apply towards the ECE Requirements of the BSCmpE degree. Excess hours may be used as Complementary Electives. The supervising instructor must be an ECE faculty member whose primary area of specialization is Computer Engineering.

Credit Guidelines: The level of effort should be approximately 3 hours of effort per credit hour per week (for a 15 week Fall or Spring semester). For example, if a student takes ECE 49600 for 3 credits, then the total level of effort expected would be 9 hours per week for a total of 135 hours. During the Summer term, the weekly effort would be higher so that the total hours of effort are still about 135 hours.

Supplementary Information:
A written report must be submitted to the ECE Undergraduate Office (EE 136) at the end of the term at the same time the course grade is submitted, either as a hard copy or an electronic copy (eceugo@ecn.purdue.edu). The format and length of the report is at the discretion of the instructor, but at a minimum it should include the following information: Project title, name of student, name of instructor, term (i.e. spring 2014), credit hours, project description and summary of the results.
