Robotic Helicopters from the Electrical Engineering Design Studio

Each response to this design challenge is unique. Students in the Electrical Design Studio are designing, fabricating and testing a drone prototype that can lift, rotate 180°and land. In their third year, ECE students work on an engineering design that integrates all of the engineering skills they have learned to that point in their degree. The design studio also enables students to develop new skills in project management and teamwork.  The teams start with:
