Curriculum - EPOM 409
Master of Engineering Capstone Project

EPOM 409 is the second course in a two semester sequence that provides an opportunity for intensive study and experience with critical engineering processes. In this course, students will integrate these topics to solve a simulated business problem while working in a team environment.

The students in this class will be divided into teams. Each team plays the role of a development group in an electronics company that has been assembled to respond to a new business opportunity. The company's executive staff has decided that to achieve their growth targets, the company must expand their product line into a new strategic area. The new product line envisioned by senior management encompasses electrical, mechanical, and software disciplines coupled with effective execution of business and engineering processes.

During this course, your team will be responding to this business initiative by addressing the technical and business issues associated with getting a new product defined and successfully launched. This effort will culminate with a major feasibility study with associated background material to convince senior management that his venture will indeed be successful and worth the investment of scarce development dollars to bring this product to market. This development effort will incorporate realistic engineering process issues. Various guest speakers recognized as experts in their field will present some of the more critical issues.
