ECE Expo

ECE Expo

At the end of each academic year the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering gives undergraduate students the opportunity to formally present their final year design projects at "ECE Expo". This event gives students the chance to gain feedback from faculty, peers and staff in their own and other disciplines, and an opportunity to meet industry professionals. Students in the full-year Elec Eng 4OI6 & Elec Eng 4BI6 capstone courses work in groups of 2-5 members, designing and developing a project using the cumulative knowledge they've gained throughout their degree. These ~50 groups compete for prizes within three categories - computer engineering, electrical engineering, or electrical & biomedical engineering. During ECE Expo they are judged with certain criteria by industry representatives - sponsors of the event. All undergraduate ECE students are encouraged to attend to see what they can expect to have achieved by the 4th year of their program! Everyone is welcome to drop in, browse at your leisure, and ask questions! Admission is free.
