The purpose is to provide students with an opportunity to engage in independent research projects on advanced electrical and computer engineering topics. Projects are selected by students and supervised by faculty and other qualified mentors. While students may be required to acquire new skills or information in the course of completing a 499 project, the focus is to conduct an independent investigation of a technical theme by the student. The project may be used to satisfy the advanced lab requirement if it is approved as a primarily - experimental research project. In that case, the student will enroll in ENEE499L.

Prerequisite: Permission of ENGR-Electrical & Computer Engineering department; and completion of all lower-division technical courses in the EE curriculum.

Restriction: Must be in Engineering: Electrical program.

Repeatable to: 9 credits if content differs.

Formerly: ENEE418.

Additional Information: A total of 5 credits combined of ENEE448 and ENEE499 can count toward a degree in electrical or computer engineering.
