ENGR 13300- Individual Project

Using the knowledge that you have gained this semester, you will create a program in either Python or
MATLAB. The intent of this project is for each student to demonstrate that each student can apply the
computing skills they have acquired to address a topic or challenge that applies to each student. The
topic for your project should be one that connects with one of the following:
1. Your major or future major in engineering. What will you study and how could a program be
useful?
2. Your future career. What might you need a computer program to do as a practicing engineer?
3. Your own interests. What might be interesting to have a computer program for? Choosing
vacation destinations? Assembling a sports team? Solving logic puzzles? Evaluating music?
Each project should connect to your future major, your future career or personal interests and meet the
following specifications:
1. Brings in data either through reading a file or with user input (this can be as small as one value)
2. Has a main program (script) that calls at least 3 user defined functions.
a. At least one of the functions must be a different file (script) from the main program.
3. Uses at least one for loop
4. Uses at least one while loop
5. Uses at least one case with nested loops
Note that the nested loops can have any combination of while and for loops and can
count for one application of the loops (#3 and #4 but not both). The code must also use
a loop somewhere else in the code.
6. Uses at least one vector or matrix
7. Uses at least one if decisional structure with at least one else or elseif/elif
8. At least 100 lines of code for MATLAB or 85 lines of code for Python (not counting comments).
The Python/MATLAB files along with a report will be uploaded to Gradescope. Make sure that the files
will run as they are uploaded (e.g. have them all in the same folder). The report will consist of:
Exceptions to specifications: The intent of the specifications is to provide a standard level of
complexity for each project. Since you all are choosing different ideas the specifications
provides that common standard. If you believe that your approach is sufficiently complex and
challenging, you may request an exemption to one or more of the specifications. For example,
if you are using complex logic and advanced functions that are well beyond the scope of ENGR
13300, your code may not have to be 100/85 lines. Only the faculty or the Graduate Teaching
Assistants can grant this exemption and it will be done in writing. Requests for exemptions
must be made prior to the day of demos. If you think you could qualify for the exemptions, as a
professor or GTA.
ENGR 13300-Fall 2020 Individual Project
1. Title Page with section number, team number and team member names.
2. Introduction to the program and its theme that explains why you selected the topic and what it
achieves.
3. Overall overview of program, function descriptions, description of inputs and outputs.
4. Clear description of all user-defined functions.
5. User manual that includes screenshots, descriptions, and sample inputs and outputs that help
someone use the program.
6. Each student should upload the Python/MATLAB files directly into Gradescope. Include the code
as an appendix in the final report.
