From inception to
demonstration of the prototype, the course will follow industrial
project practices, such as version control, design requirements,
design reviews and quality assurance plans. The lecture
content will cover background material intended to complement the
project work, and will also leverage lessons learned from case studies of industrial
practices and incidents. The remainder of the course will consist of regular team
presentations of key project milestones, current project status, a
final project presentation and functional demonstrations of various
subsystems, even as the entire prototype is being developed.
Format: 3 hrs lecture, 9 hrs lab
Lectures: Wed 9.30-12.20pm, CIC 1201 (Spring 2014)
