What resources did the Senior Design team that won the 2009 Competition 2009 find useful?
CoE held its 2009 Senior Design Competition June 3, 2009 in the Mitchell Auditorium. All graduating CoE students are required to complete a Senior Design project, teaching students the engineering design process from conception to production. Eight teams competed for first place but Dr. Steven Weber’s team took the grand prize with their ‘schdulr’ system.
1ST PLACE TEAM
Project Representing Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering
Comprehensive Web-Based Course Management and Scheduling System
The ECE team designed an application called ‘schdulr’, which is a web-based course scheduling application that provides students with a unified interface to plan out their course of study at college and register for classes.
The team consisted of Abhishek Bhardwaj, Anisha Shrestha and George Benny Varghese.
Team's reflection on resources that they found useful:
"Our senior design project is an application called "schdulr". It is a web based course management and scheduling system. We used the Ruby and Ruby on Rails framework to build our application. We used the physical library resources extensively as a programming reference for Ruby and to learn about optimization theory. The online resources such as Books24X7 and Safari offered us the convenience to access the information from anywhere. This allowed us to significantly reduce the development time and helped us create an award winning project."
