Reference: Depends on project

Prerequisites: Junior or Senior in Electrical Engineering (Special requests from students in other desciplines will be considered.)

Course Description: This course is designed to give senior and junior level electrical and computer engineering students an opportunity to work closely with a faculty member. The topics covered are arranged by an agreement between the faculty member and the student on an individual basis.

Grading Procedure: Students are required to prepare a 1 page review of the current weeks progress/problems and to present this at a weekly session for all independent study students. These presentations will be no longer than 5 mins per student (1-2 slides). Participation in these meetings will count as 50% of the grade. In addition, a mid-term report and a final report will be required. These reports will count as 20% of the grade. The final 30% of the is based on my evaluation of the progress made on the individual project. Because this is not a formal course, this allows the instructor the ability to adjust for unforseen problems with hardware for experimental projects.
