Semester 2 Engineering Design Project Demonstrations
The Engineering Design Project module is a creative and enjoyable module offered by the Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering at the University of Moratuwa. The new curricular—both electronic and telecommunication engineering and biomedical engineering—feature this new compulsory course module called Engineering Design Project in semester 2. The aim of this module is to provide a holistic view of the processes leading to design and manufacturing in electronic, telecommunication and biomedical engineering. The module trains the students on the use modularity and abstraction in solving engineering problems, applying basic engineering design principles, using design tools for electronic product prototyping, identifying various manufacturing processes involved in electronic product manufacture, designing a product prototype to comply with given technical specifications, and analyzing the performance and manufacturability of the developed prototype. This is the very start of the journey of engineering product design and manufacturing.
In this module four members were formed into teams and each team had to come up with a marketable electronic-related product that gives a solution to a prevailing problem in the society, they have to do marketing, PCB design, coding, enclosure design and all the stuff related to product manufacturing. There are a total of 30 groups (26 electronic and telecom groups and 4 biomedical groups) each focused on a specific field. This is a small description of selected products from those 30 products.
There was also a device that can indicate the remaining gas level of a LP gas cylinder. It is designed to help people monitor and manage their gas usage more efficiently. It will continuously measure and calculate the remaining gas percentage and display it on the mobile app, along with other analytics about gas usage. There were many more other exciting and innovative products that have design and created by ENTC undergraduates. Congratulate to all the teams who complete there project successfully.
