UMass Amherst Electrical and Computer Engineering Students To Exhibit Senior Design Projects

AMHERST, Mass. - Nine teams of electrical and computer engineering students at the University of Massachusetts will exhibit their senior design projects at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Design Day, 10 a.m.-noon, Tues. May 1, in the Gunness Student Center in Marcus Hall at UMass. Reporters and photographers are welcome to attend the event.

The engineering students worked in teams of three on the projects, starting last September. Each team received guidance from a faculty member. A wide array of projects will be displayed and demonstrated, including a hearing-impairment simulator, a voice-recognition system, a wireless heart rate monitor, and a radio-control system for the Lego Mindstorms Robotics Invention System. Students will be on hand to display and explain their projects.

For more information, T. Baird Soules, senior design project course coordinator in the department of electrical and computer engineering, may be reached at 413/545-2441, or soules@ecs.umass.edu.
