EECS Fall 2022 Capstone Projects // Mizzou Engineering | Jobs Vox

December 22, 2022

A semester-long capstone project culminates in coursework for seniors in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. During these projects, students work together in teams to study real-world challenges and make recommendations for those problems. The experience gives students the practical preparation they need to succeed after graduation.

Students in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering complete capstones.

In computer science, the group The Cavemen created the VR escape room game Cave Escape for Mizzou Cave. Using the CAVE, players solve puzzles that increase in difficulty as they advance throughout the game in order to escape.

Another group, Rubik’s Noob, set out to create an application that could solve a scrambled Rubik’s Cube and provide a visual aid to allow the user to see the cube being solved. In fact, users can input their real life cube patterns into the program to see how the puzzle is solved. The program has three solving methods, layer by layer, CFOP and Thistlethwaite. The last method is not learnable by humans, but is meant to get the user to the solved cube as quickly as possible.

Electrical and computer engineering students create flyers to advertise their senior design projects. Student projects varied in theme. For example, one group designed a robotic arm control system for the manipulation of radioactive materials, while another illustrated a blind spot monitoring and alerting system for cyclists.

Below are the EECS capstone projects for the 2022 semester. Take a moment to learn how students at EECS develop solutions to engineering problems.
