DOCUMENT TEMPLATES AND SPECIFICATIONS
Learning to conform to format requirements is a very
important part of techical/professional communications
and a significant part of a customer-driven engineering process.
There are, of course, numerous examples of excellent senior design
projects and documents on-line from past semesters. Here are a few of my
You can use these projects as examples of the quality
expected in terms of presentations, design documents and web sites.
In addition, we have some other important resources:
- J. Wallace, M. Jackson, C. Rice, and J. Bjelobrk,

Design Document Examples:
provides detailed examples (under development) for the design document,
including samples from previous design documents.
Design Document Guidelines:
provides a detailed specification for the design document,
including all relevant format requirements, font selections,
etc. Deviations from this format must be approved by the instructor.
provides a detailed specification for the proper format
for many different types of references, including reports, URLs,
and data sheets.
Powerpoint Tricks: a very nice powerpoint presentation
that demonstrates many of the impressive features of Powerpoint
(in an engineering context).
Presentation Outline: an html-based presentation outline.
Prototype Web Site: a simple skeleton of a web site that
you can download and use for your team's web site.
