Joining an Enterprise
Enterprise is made up of teams of students that operate like a company to solve real-world problems in a learning atmosphere. The enterprise program emphasizes sustainability, ethics, safety, innovation, creativity, and communication.
You can join an enterprise to complete the engineering design requirement. Pursuing the Enterprise Minor or Concentration is optional. There are three enterprises in the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department:
|L02 Blue Marble Security||Dr. Glen Archer, EERC 629|
|L03 Wireless Communication||Mr. Kit Cischke, EERC 520|
|L15 Robotic Systems||Dr. Jeremy Bos, EERC 623|
|L21 Aerospace Enterprise (MEEM)||Dr. Brad King, MEEM 1014|
Can I join Enterprises in other departments?
You are also eligible to participate in the other enterprise programs on campus. If you are joining enterprise for Senior Design credit, ensure you participate on a project that provides you with engineering design experience in your major (EE or CpE). Computer Engineers should evaluate hardware/software tradeoffs in senior level enterprise work. Many enterprises need EE and CpE majors on projects. Shop around and find a project that will be interesting and/or fun.
How do I register for an Enterprise minor?
To "Add" the enterprise minor, you must obtain the approval of the faculty advisor for the enterprise you wish to join, and complete a Curriculum Change form with Mr. Rick Berkey, 708 M & M.
Which course number do I enroll in?
Pay close attention to the prerequisite chains. It might be best to start enterprise when you are in Calc II or beyond.
Based on the number of semesters you have remaining at Tech (on campus):
Suggested Co-requisite; Take:
|EE||CpE||# remaining semesters: ENTxxxx (x credits)|
|MA2160||MA2160||7: ENT1960 (1 credit)|
|EE2111||CS2321 & EE2111||6: ENT2950 (1)|
|EE2112||EE2112 & CS1141||5: ENT2960 (1)|
|EE3131||EE3131 & CS3421||4: ENT3950 (1) (Begins senior design sequence)|
|EE Elective||EE3173||3: ENT3960 (1) (if ENT3950 is complete or if you are on 3-semester option)|
|;||;||2: ENT4950 (2) (ENT3960, and senior design prereqs for your major complete)|
|;||;||1: ENT4960 (2) . . . (ENT4950 must be complete; Ends senior design sequence)|
|;||;||Another 1: ENT4961 (1) . . . "Super Senior Semester" (ENT4960 must be complete)|
Look up the CRN and section number Lxx that corresponds to the enterprise you are enrolling in. Complete a special approval waiver form and bring to Enterprise Faculty Advisor for approval signature. Take completed and signed form to Admin. Student Services Center or EERC 131 if ECE enterprise.
What can Enterprise credit count for, if not applied to Design credit?
EE Majors: Approved Electives (Not SELECT) or free electives
CpE Majors: Up to 2 cr may apply in technical electives, check your audit or advisor for details.
