ECE Seniors Awarded for Capstone Projects

On May 10, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering celebrated its seniors with a dinner reception during which teams were awarded for their capstone design projects. The projects—which serve as the culmination of the students’ undergraduate Villanova Engineering experience—represented a variety of initiatives, from enabling an elephant telepresence for the Philadelphia Zoo to applying game theory to drone search strategies for Harris Corporation. Other projects focused on international development through the Villanova Engineering Service Learning program.

A panel of alumni judges awarded prizes as follows:
