Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

::::::::::::BIOENGINEERING (BIOE)
Design is an important component of our undergraduate and graduate training
programs. Undergraduates must satisfy a design requirement by taking one of
four upper division design courses or through faculty-directed individual
research. One of these, the Bioengineering capstone design course, prepares
students for leadership and innovation in the medical technology field
through team projects partnered with physician clients to solve real-world
bioengineering problems. Many of our undergraduate students participate in
independent laboratory research and design in faculty laboratories. There
are also many opportunities for summer and extracurricular research in
independent programs and teams, such as the successful Berkeley iGEM team,
and several of our courses are project intensive.

Some recent undergraduate projects:
::::::The HandleBar - a ratcheting assist handle that enables independently living elders with limited mobility to ascend and descend stairs in their homes under their own power without falling.

:::::: An unobtrusive LPG stove usage monitor with wireless data collection capabilities, to help spread the adoption of low-pollution LPG stoves in resource-poor areas.

:::::: A microscope-top thermal cycler, a device that can simultaneously raise the temperature of a sample while live imaging in the research lab.

::::::::::::CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING (CEE) -- All students participate in at least one of the following capstone design courses in their senior year: CE 105, Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Hydrology ; CE 112, Environmental Engineering Design; CE 122, Design of Steel Structures; CE 123, Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures; CE 153, Transportation Facility Design; CE 177, Foundation Engineering Design; CE 180, Construction, Maintenance, and Design of Engineered Systems, CE 186, Design
of Cyber Physical Systems

:::::: For example, one design course breaks into teams to address design, construction and maintenance of contemporary civil and environmental engineered systems. Teams identify engineering problems aided by experienced engineers and consultants. They construct a physical model of a system or a critical part of the system, and produce a formal report on their project. At end of the semester, the student teams present project results to a panel of judges.

:::::: In addition to the design classes, students are involved in extramural competitions such as the concrete canoe, steel bridge, environmental team, the AGC (American General Contractor) team and the Seismic Design team.

:::: Concrete Canoe: Undergraduate students apply engineering principles to design, analyze, construct and race a concrete canoe. Students enter the regional canoe competition and winners go to a national competition, sponsored by ASCE and Master Builders, Inc. The competition is judged on the engineering design and construction principles used, a technical paper, an oral presentation and a display as well as the performance of the canoe and paddlers in five different race events.

:::: Steel Bridge Design and Construction: Undergraduate students design, analyze and construct a short span bridge, all in steel. Students enter their design in the regional competition where the bridge is loaded to failure and maximum capacity/weight is measured. The activity is organized by the Student Chapter of ASCE and was supported by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).

:::: The Environmental Team: The competition team is tasked with applying solutions to real world environmental problems such as water filtration in disaster situations using only the resources available at hand. In a state-wide contest, students compete against other university teams.

:::::: The American General Contractor's Team is a construction management competition team. Students are called upon to work in a professional atmosphere and develop solutions to a real-life Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building project.

::::::Seismic: The Seismic Competition Team educates students on earthquake
design of high rise buildings. Students construct a 5' model building made
of balsa wood which is tested over a shake table that replicates historic
earthquakes.


::::::All the competition teams are now offered as student led DeCal classes and students enrolled in these activities receive course credit for their participation.

:::::: Berkeley Engineering students are also able to join Engineers for a Sustainable World, an organization that is interested in engineering issues surrounding appropriate developing technologies.


::::::::::::ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE ENGINEERING (EECS)

EE 192:How to Build a Robot in 5 Easy Steps
Building a basically functioning racing car robot in EECS192 typically takes 5 weeks of the course. Students use the remainder of the course to improve sensors, system integration, and algorithms. Debugging the whole system of course takes time, and the more complicated the system is, the longer the debugging takes. Students work in teams of 2 or 3 students, to divide the work. Experience shows that simple designs take less time to build, and work better!
The design process is broken down into manageable steps through design checkpoints. Each design step is preceded by a lecture covering the main ideas and principles.

EECS 149/249A introduces students to the design and analysis of computational systems that interact with physical processes. Applications of such systems include medical devices and systems, consumer electronics, toys and games, assisted living, traffic control and safety, automotive systems, process control, energy management and conservation, environmental control, aircraft control systems, communications systems, instrumentation, critical infrastructure control (electric power, water resources, and communications systems for example), robotics and distributed robotics (telepresence, telemedicine), defense systems, manufacturing, and smart structures.
Examples of Projects:
Roomba Cal-ligraphy â€" uses a Roomba to draw the Cal logo, a non-trivial
Robotic Waiter â€" Roomba takes orders, picks up food from the kitchen and delivers it to the table
Intelligent Braking â€" allowing a moving object (like a robotic car) with an object on top of it to brake before hitting another object (like a wall) without the object on top falling off.

CS 184/284A â€" Computer Graphics and Imaging
The goal of the final project is for you to choose a graphics or imaging problem that is of interest to you, research ways to solve it, organize and schedule your work plan, execute a programming project of significant technical challenge that addresses your problem, present your work in front of the class, and create a final report. We are giving you wide latitude on problem selection, computing platform, and what resources and software starting point you wish to use. Have fun, and work on something that you are excited about!
Project teams will be of 1-3 members. The scope and amount of work should scale according to the team size.
Sample Projects
Rendering Volumetric Scattering
In assignment 3, you did surface rendering where it is assumed that light only scatters when it hits a surface. In this case, the rendering equation is an integral over all surfaces in the scene. However, this surface rendering technique could not render some cool volumetric scattering effects like fog.
To model volumetric scattering, you need to compute an integral over all volumes and all surfaces in the scene. You can do this by modifying your path tracer. The main difference is that a ray may get scattered before it hits any surface in volume. You may find the following resources useful for the project.
A chapter of Wojciech Jarosz's thesis introduces some basic concepts about volumetric scattering. A paper by Lafortune and Willems has implementation details. You can skip section 4 of the paper for a simple path tracing implementation. But a bidirectional path tracing implementation will definitely help you reduce noise in volumetric scattering rendering.
Photon Mapping
You may have noticed that the path tracer in assignment 3 is very inefficient on rendering caustics. To improve caustics rendering, you can implement a technique called photon mapping. Photon mapping is more efficient on caustics because it allows path samples to be shared across pixels. The core part of photon mapping is a stucture to lookup photons inside a sphere in the scene. Options for the structure include KD-tree and hash grid.
Point Cloud to Mesh
The goal of this project idea is to convert point cloud input data, which are often obtained by 3D scanners, into a mesh representation. This paper introduces an interesting and easy to understand algorithm that works reasonably well. If you want more of a challenge, you would probably try implementing this paper. To test your implementation, you can find some 3D mesh models from this repository. Then, you can run your mesh reconstruction algorithm on vertices of the input model. Once you have the reconstructed mesh, you can easily compare it with the original mesh from the model.

::::: ME - Formula SAE at Berkeley: The Formula SAE Series competitions challenge teams of university undergraduate and graduate students to conceive, design, fabricate and compete with small, formula style, autocross racing cars. To give teams the maximum design flexibility and the freedom to express their creativity and imaginations there are very few restrictions on the overall vehicle design. Teams typically spend eight to twelve months designing, building, testing and preparing their vehicles before a competition. The competitions themselves give teams the chance to demonstrate and prove both their creation and their engineering skills in comparison to teams from other universities around the world. The team has been working hard on the design of the 2009 car. The biggest change for this upcoming year is that they will be moving to a carbon-fiber monocoque for the front half of the car, while keeping a steel tube frame for the rear half. The Team is continuing with their single-cylinder, 450cc engine (Honda CRF450x) from last year, but they are also doing far more testing and analysis on the associated engine systems in order to maximize our horsepower. General goals for this year include further reducing overall weight, gaining power, improving ergonomics, and increasing the breadth and depth of analysis in the design phases. The team has already begun construction on the rear subframe, as well as several of the suspension components. The engine is on schedule to go on the dyno within the next few weeks, with several test mufflers ready to go and test intakes being finalized.

The team is open to Cal students of any year and any major.

This program is only available to Berkeley EECS and CS L&S Undergraduates.

In addition, non-Berkeley undergraduates can apply to complete the M.S. either as part of their Ph.D. program or as a stand-alone M.S. At this time, we admit very few students to the M.S. only program, so applicants for the masters may want to consider one of our other master’s degree programs. The M.S. and Ph.D. are academic degrees with an emphasis on research. Master’s degrees are offered in both EECS and Computer Science. We do have a fifth year M.S. program for our own EECS and L&S CS graduates, offering a master’s degree in a single extra year. Students apply when they are seniors.
EECS also participates in the Master’s of Engineering (M.Eng.) program, offered by the Fung Institute. This is a one year program that offers a combination of technical and leadership training, culminating in a capstone project supervised by EECS faculty members.
Our MAS-IC program is a part-time, fully online degree program that provides a master’s degree in Integrated Circuits.

Undergraduate Minors
• The EECS Minor
The EECS minor, offered through the College of Engineering (COE), is an optional program for students interested in a coherent study of EECS outside their major. It is open to any undergraduate who has declared a major other than EECS on the UC Berkeley campus and who has completed two of the four lower division course requirements, and has a GPA (in required lower division courses) of 3.0 at the time of their application.
• The CS Minor
The CS minor program is offered through the College of Engineering (COE) and is open to all upper division Berkeley undergraduates with a declared major other than EECS and L&S CS. To be admitted to the CS minor, students must have declared a major and have completed the lower division prerequisites for the minor. In order to complete the minor, students must have a grade point average of at least 2.0 in the required coursework.
Joint Major Programs

The department offers two joint majors, one with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and one with Nuclear Engineering.

• EECS/Materials Science and Engineering
For students interested in materials and devices, a double major in EECS/MSE can be valuable. The program combines the study of materials from a broad perspective, as taught in MSE, with the study of their applications in electronic devices and circuits, as taught in EECS.
• EECS/Nuclear Engineering
The EECS/NE double major combines the traditional EE program with one in the nuclear sciences. Nuclear Engineering shares with EE a concern for electrical power generation, automatic control, computer sciences and plasmas.

:::::::::::: INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING AND OPERATIONS RESEARCH
The Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research minor program is offered through the College of Engineering (COE) and is open to all upper division Berkeley undergraduates with a declared major other than IEOR.

The ORMS program has four possible concentrations: decision making in economic systems, decision making in industrial and service systems, decision making in societal systems, and algorithmic decision making. BA students will develop scientific and quantitative, model building, and problem solving skills through core courses in mathematics, statistics, operations research, and management sciences. They will also learn to apply these skills and tools effectively for operational, tactical, and strategic decisions in scientific solving problems in an area of their choice.

Graduate students will emphasize on applied courses, preparing them for professional practice or may follow a more theoretical program for those intending to pursue doctoral studies. In the doctoral program, students investigate additional major topics in depth, as well as study two minor fields.

The five year program is designed for a small number of students with outstanding performance to allow the students to obtain both degrees in five years. Each student must complete three courses within their area of concentration, as well as complete an individual or small group project as well part of the program via at least 2 units of either Master's level-independent study units or a Master's level project based course to gain experience in applying IEOR methodology to real-world problems.

IEOR is home to the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (SCET) offers undergraduate courses in entrepreneurship as well as professional networks and research marked by strong industry participation. The Engineering Leadership Program for Professionals (ELPP) offers a certificate program for working engineers seeking to develop professional and leadership skills to contribute to their companies at a higher level.

::::::::::::MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
Materials Science and Engineering encompasses all natural and man-made materials, their extraction, synthesis, processing, properties, characterization, and development for technological applications. Advanced engineering activities that depend upon optimized
materials include the medical device and healthcare industries, the energy industries, electronics and photonics, transportation, advanced batteries and fuel cells, and nanotechnology. Students in materials science and engineering develop a fundamental understanding of materials at the nano, micro and macro scales, leading to specialization

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING:
All students must satisfy the general requirements for admission to the University. Students admitted as freshmen may petition to change to a joint major after completing their first year at Berkeley; junior transfer applicants are not able to apply to joint majors. There are also 2 major programs in conjuction with chemical engineering offered through the College of Chemistry; transfer students interested in these majors must apply to the College of Chemistry.

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING:
Complete information on undergraduate admissions is available at
http://chemistry.berkeley.edu/ugrad/degrees

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Proficiency in English is critical to success at UC Berkeley. One of the following exams is required of all international applicants from non-English speaking countries:
• International English Language Testing System (IELTS) - a score of 6.5 or higher on the academic module or
• Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) - a score of 80 or higher on the TOEFL iBT or 550 or higher on the paper-based exam
Language exam results must be received in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions no later than January prior to the fall semester in which the student wishes to enroll. More information for international applicants is available at: http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/international/applying-for-admission/index.html

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

No additional requirements. Information for non-resident freshman applicants is available at:
http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/freshman/out-of-state/index.html

Residency Requirements

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING:
UC Berkeley is one of the premier universities in the nation, attracting students from many different states and countries. It is also a state-supported institution and, therefore, must charge all nonresident students an additional Nonresident Supplemental Tuition fee. Because of the financial independence requirement, the process of obtaining California residency for tuition purposes is extremely difficult for undergraduate students with nonresident parents. Virtually all nonresident undergraduates with nonresident parents remain nonresidents for the duration of their undergraduate career at the University. Detailed information regarding establishing residency for tuition purposes can be found at http://registrar.berkeley.edu/tuition-fees-residency/residency-tuition-purposes

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING:
For tuition purposes, U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are not residents of California may be able to establish California residency by fulfilling the physical presence, intent AND financial independence requirements. Because of the financial independence requirement, the process of obtaining California residency for tuition purposes is extremely difficult for undergraduate students with nonresident parents. Virtually all nonresident undergraduates with nonresident parents remain nonresidents for the duration of their undergraduate career at the University. Many graduate students, however, are able to establish residency the year after their arrival. Detailed information regarding establishing residency for tuition purposes can be found at http://registrar.berkeley.edu/tuition-fees-residency/residency-tuition-purposes.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING:
Berkeley gives the highest priority for admission to California community college applicants. Lower priority is given to applicants from other UC campuses, other four-year institutions or non-California community colleges. Applicants are evaluated primarily on their completion of lower-division required courses (and, if available, the strongly recommended courses for admission), as well as the level of academic achievement reflected in their GPA (minimum 3.3 GPA is required to apply). Only applicants who have completed 100 percent of the required core courses for Berkeley Engineering â€" as outlined on ASSIST â€" will be considered for admission.

This includes courses that satisfy Berkeley’s reading and composition requirement (English 1A & 1B). Other lower-division courses required for graduation are strongly recommended to strengthen one’s application. The required personal statement is also reviewed for evidence of interest in the student’s chosen major and thoughtful match between the academic program and the student’s academic and career objectives. Test scores and letters of recommendation are not requested as part of the admissions process for transfers.

The undergraduate degree requirements for each major can be found in the College of Engineering Undergraduate Guide.

Applicants must complete a minimum of 60 UC-transferable semester units by the end of spring term prior to fall admission. Applicants with excessive transferable semester units (89 or more from a four-year institution or those who complete coursework at a community college and then transfer to a four-year institution) are ineligible for admission.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Research Description

Research Description By Graduate Engineering Department

Bioengineering

Graduate degrees in bioengineering are offered jointly by UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco, through a combined faculty of related specialties. The research of the faculty members of the UC Berkeley - UC San Francisco Graduate Program in Bioengineering falls into nine main areas of focus: Biomaterials; Biomechanics; Biomedical Imaging and Instrumentation; BioMEMS
& Nanotech; Computational Biology, Bioinformatics and Genomics; Drug Delivery Systems & Pharmacogenomics; Neural Systems Engineering & Vision Science; Systems & Synthetic Biology; and Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine.

The graduate program combines the outstanding resources in biomedical sciences at UCSF with the excellence in engineering, physical, and life sciences at UC Berkeley to embrace a diversity of research topics. Many cutting-edge research opportunities for our graduate students exist at the intersections and overlaps of the above focus areas, and our students are instrumental in carrying out intercampus and interdisciplinary collaborations.

Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering has programs of graduate teaching and research in the following areas: biochemical engineering; metabolic engineering; separations; catalysis and reaction engineering; electrochemical engineering; electronic materials; molecular theory and simulation, complex fluids, including polymers and colloids; biomedical engineering; microelectronics processing and Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). Individual faculty research programs can be found by following the links at http://cheme.berkeley.edu/faculty/faculty.html

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and Environmental Engineering
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at UC Berkeley is a worldwide leader in developing engineering solutions to societal-scale challenges. The Department conducts cutting-edge research, in evolving and vital areas that address societal needs for well-designed and well-operated buildings, energy, transportation, and water systems. These critical systems must be reliable and resilient in the face of hazards such as earthquakes and flooding. Extensive efforts will be needed to adapt civil infrastructure to withstand adverse changes in weather and climate. Our research and teaching serve the needs of a growing and increasingly urban world population that requires sustainable improvements in standards of living.

CEE research establishes and advances the intellectual foundations of new fields of study. We develop theory and improve understanding, and provide tools and techniques for solving important new problems. Educational activities of the Department focus on developing future leaders in the engineering profession, in academia, and in the broader societal context. Through individual and collective efforts, the Department serves the needs of our College and University, and provides technical expertise and service to other public, private, and professional entities.

The Department is a place of intellectual vitality and diversity in which all students, faculty, and staff have the opportunity and the impetus to achieve their highest potential. Signs of this vitality and diversity are seen in innovative research conducted by students and faculty; creative, flexible, adaptable, and forward-looking curricula; outstanding classroom teaching; attentive academic mentoring; and a shared sense of a community that is inclusive and respectful of all members. We are proud of our contributions to the public mission of the University of California, as demonstrated for example by our role in providing access to higher education for students from low and middle-income families.

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences

Industrial Engineering and Operations Research

Research is conducted on mathematical optimization (including linear and non-linear programming, integer programming and combinatorial optimization), stochastic processes, queuing models, quality control, simulation modeling, risk analysis, production planning and scheduling, distribution and transportation planning, supply chain management, electric utility planning, energy systems, healthcare systems, robotics, stochastic control and financial engineering.

Materials Science & Engineering

Research within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering can be described within five themes: (i) Biomaterials, (ii) Chemical and Electrochemical Materials, (iii) Computational Materials, (iv) Electronic, Magnetic and Optical Materials, and (v) Structural Materials.
Biomaterials
Traditionally, biomaterials encompass synthetic alternatives to the native materials found in our body. A central limitation in the performance of traditional materials used in the medical device, biotechnological, and pharmaceutical industries is that they lack the ability to integrate with biological systems through either a molecular or cellular pathway, which has relegated biomaterials to a passive role dictated by the constituents of a particular environment, leading to unfavorable outcomes and device failure. The design and synthesis of materials that circumvent their passive behavior in complex mammalian cells is the focus of the work conducted within the MSE Department at Berkeley.
Specific examples of research activity include the design and synthesis of biomimetic materials that actively direct the behavior of mammalian cells to facilitate regeneration of tissues and organs. Major discoveries from this laboratory have centered on the control of cell behavior and tissue formation in contact with surfaces either modified with peptides or spatially distributed chemistry to induce cell differentiation. An Additional theme in the laboratory is the synthesis of biomimetic hydrogel analogues of the extracellular matrix. These materials find applications in the fields of medicine, dentristry, and biotechnology.
Chemical and Electrochemical materials
