Electrical engineering students present senior capstone projects virtuallyPublished May 20, 2020
Electrical engineering seniors Skander Helali and Ghida Dandan
Ten teams of seniors in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Program presented the senior capstone projects that they’ve spent the past two semesters working on to a panel of external examiners from industry and academia both in and out of Qatar.
Each team showcased two videos, a presentation and a demo virtually. The projects covered a wide variety of topics related to local issues in the State of Qatar but also of global significance. Topics included medicine, renewable energy, environment and water irrigation. The students referred to IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) standards, which is important in recognizing the value of standards in design reliability and acceptance. Several groups also used local data in engineering their solutions, which makes their projects resemble relevant, real-world engineering problems.
Students did very well in considering ethical, economical, technical, and safety issues in their projects and the proposed solutions, said Wesam Mansour, assistant manager in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Program. “In light of the COVID-19 situation and what the students had to go through by not being able to have access to the lab, they have managed to complete their projects and deliver excellent work. All teams have demonstrated a great deal of professionalism and dedication to their respective projects.”

Dr. Erchin Serpedin, professor and program chair, said, “Senior capstone design projects represent the bridge that connects the classroom education with the complex engineering problems of industry. Successful completion of the senior capstone design projects represents a milestone in the preparation of students as professional engineers. Warm congratulations to all senior capstone design project teams for their good job.”
