Laboratory Project:
Report Guidelines and Schedule

All students will present and/or demonstrate their lab projects on Tuesday, December 8, 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM. You should arrive at 8 AM and stay for the entire session. The main purpose of the lab project is for you to learn something new about a topic of your choice in the general area of signals and systems.

Written report: Each group is asked to submit a brief written report that describes your project objectives, explains the approach that you used, and summarizes your results. I recommend that you submit your report before final exams, by Wednesday, December 9, at 9 AM. However, it is OK if you submit the report by Monday, December 14.

Oral presentation: Please limit your presentation to 8 minutes, with demonstrations and questions included within that time. A suggestion for organizing your presentation is to do the following:

  1. Clearly explain the problem that you addressed in your project.
  2. Summarize the approach that you used.
  3. Show results, demonstration, problems encountered, etc.
With 19 different presentations, the audience will not be able to absorb a lot of technical details, so try to convey the basic ideas of what you did.
