CECS 490 and CECS 491: Home

The first in a two-course capstone senior project in computer engineering.


CECS 490 Syllabus:

Computer Engineering Senior Design projects require higher-level thinking skills, problem-solving, and creative thinking. They are often interdisciplinary and may require extensive re-search.

CECS 491 Syllabus:

Projects may include design and development of data intensive web applications, embedded systems applications, games, knowledge management systems, and other types of systems. Students will use their software engineering skills to complete a group project.

Using library and other information resources can enhance the creative process.


Why use information resources?

Information resoures play a very important role in creative and brainstorming process

  • Finding alternative solutions
  • There is no right or wrong answer to solving the problem
  • How did others solve or try to solve the problem(s)?
  • Has your problem been solved?
  • Has someone already developed what you are trying to invent?
  • What is the market for your product?

Using the library's databases and other information resources will assist you in trying to answer these questions especially in the conceptual phase of the design process.
