Electronics and computer engineering technology students showcase talent
Release date: Dec. 12, 2019
There are no limits for the imagination and talent of Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology students at Camosun College.
An incredible array of innovative new projects designed and developed by graduating Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology students at Camosun College are being featured today at a year-end Capstone Symposium.
The first consumer-grade laser beam that can map a room. An automated pest deterrence system using artificial intelligence. A high-quality, poly polyphonic audio compact synthesizer powered by a combination of a microcontroller and a field-programmer gate array. These are just a few of the projects on display.
The annual Capstone Symposium showcases the achievements of Camosun’s senior Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology students who partnered with local businesses, and in some cases developed their own entrepreneurial inspired products.
Other projects on display include: a remote data collection system that employs Bluetooth 5 to remove wires from remote sensing installations, a 200W amplifier with mixer and touch screen, a unique LoRa based search and rescue tracker, a lithium battery monitoring system for University of Victoria aerospace research, an update to a 1980’s robot, a fish attractor and seal deterrent, a smart IoT-capable lamp that features a camera with motion detection, a Google Assistant and much more.
“These tech projects are truly amazing,” says Alan Duncan, Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology chair with Camosun College. “Our students gain valuable, applied career experience, creating solutions to real problems.”
Camosun’s Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology program offers leading-edge education and training in both hardware and software design. Students develop the skills necessary to analyze problems and develop solutions, using a combination of hardware and software.
Graduates of this program can choose to work with some leading-edge local companies whose products are sought after worldwide, or chose to enter Camosun’s engineering bridge program that transfers to the University of Victoria.
Camosun students, employees and the general public are invited to drop by, meet the students and check out the exciting finished innovations.
