ExCEllence in Senior Design Showcase

5:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. Location: Friday: SPN, Saturday: DGAC

A Commitment to Excellence
We are excited to announce the inaugural ExCEllence in Senior Design Showcase presented by Würth Elektronik and hosted at The University of Texas at Dallas. This showcase will bring together top student teams and their faculty to engage in friendly competition, encourage networking among students and industry, and learn about best practices.

Senior Design Challenge
An important part of an engineering student’s collegiate experience is the opportunity to participate in a competition to prove their design and technical skills while bringing prestige to their University through their accomplishments. Unfortunately, such a contest did not exist for electrical and computer engineering students until now. The University of Texas at Dallas is changing that by hosting the first ECE Senior Design Showcase on May 24-25, 2019. In its inaugural year, the UT Dallas ECE Department invited the universities that are part of the southwest region of the ECE Department Heads Association, along with a few additional Texas and Oklahoma schools, to enter their highest rated ECE teams.

Goal of the Design Challenge
The goal of the challenge is to provide an opportunity for ECE students in the southwest region to showcase their design and problem solving skills in a friendly competition. College teams of four (4) students are required to design and build a prototype for an electrical and computer engineering problem they select. Student teams will be judged on their design accomplishments and presentations. Awards will be presented to recognize achievement in a variety of categories.
