Student Design Projects Description

There will be a project for seniors in CET and one for seniors in EET. The EET project is a fabrication project which requires the student to build and debug a relatively complex electronic system or industrial control system. The CET project student teams take the role of the prime contractor and are given a set of plans and specifications for a small actual project that has already been completed, such as a small bridge replacement, or a modest commercial building. The students are required to identify the steps or operations necessary to build the project, estimate their duration, arrange them in an effective sequence, determine which are to be subcontracted, plan the sequence for ordering and delivery of materials, estimate the cost (including appropriate overhead) for each activity and predict the cash flow for the project. The project is not sponsored, but local chapters of AGC and local firms donate the plans, etc.
