Sr Project Email: Things coming up before spring break; SE Project Day; Final presentations

I am going to highlight a number of things in this message. Please read through all of it.

  • I finally put together a Project Timeline for the 14-week terms. You can use this for your planning for the remainder of senior project.
  • The How to Make a Poster session will be on Tuesday, 6 March, at 5pm in SLA 2220/10. This is a required all-hands meeting. The presentation will last 35 - 40 minutes. If you meet your project sponsor on Tuesday's, you will need to delay the start of your meeting that day. Your poster files will be due by 4:30pm on Monday, 2 April. More information will follow with submission instructions.
  • Your poster presentation to the faculty and SE Industrial Advisory Board members will be on Thursday, 12 April from 6:30 - 8:30pm. At least two team members will need to be present throughout that period to talk about your project and answer questions. It does not need to be the same team members for the whole two hours. You can break it up into shifts.
  • Next week, your coach should put up mid-term peer evaluations for you to complete. You will do a mid-term project review the following week.
  • Shortly, we will decide on the schedule for final presentations which will be during the last two weeks of the term (16 April and 23 April). Once the schedule days are set, requests for times will work the same as for the interim presentations. Our goal will be to have presentations scheduled before spring break or at the latest the week right after break.
