The department will print one copy of the poster which will be kept by the department. If your project sponsor would like a copy of the poster, you can provide the poster files to the sponsor.
Software Engineering Project Day will be in the evening of the first day of the department's annual Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) meeting. Plan on having two team members at the poster during a two hour period. The location, date, and exact time will be in the Important Dates information on the Senior Project myCourses homepage when the final schedule is made. During this time, the IAB members and faculty will be judging not just your poster but they will also evaluate how well you have completed the overall project work. They will evaluate your project using this ballot. We will announce the Best Project at a Senior Project Celebration event at the end of the term.
If you have any questions about the poster ask your faculty coach, or the Senior Project Coordinator.
