In the third-year design course IGEN 330, each student presents a potential project idea. The professors must approve the project ideas and then students form their own groups of four to seven people. The projects are designed, built and tested over two terms. Weekly meetings with the professors ensure the projects stay on track. In addition to assignments and interim reports, the teams are responsible for a final report and presentation each term. IGEN 330 runs over the course of the entire academic year in Fall and Winter terms. This 8 month period allows more time for larger, more ambitious projects than in second year, or the ability to complete multiple iterations of the design cycle.
