Abstract

The master student study plan application is a web application is for master students who are having some
problems with submitting study plan properly.
The ECE department has limited time with troubling
paperwork since it can be too much time consuming.
With this application a master student will have to
obtain the rules; such as not selecting a class that is in different program.
In other words, the stud
ent will
not be dealing with a person rather than following a instructions. This application will force the student to
obey the rules.
This is being done for computer engineering, electrical engineering, and networked
information systems departments.

Proj
ect Status

Design Approach

The approach of the design is at the stage of researching the restrictions on drop
-
down menu for the list of
the classes that the student is going to register; such as electrical engineering master student registering
for the cla
sses called

EE
441


Introduction to Wireless Systems. There will be a drop down menu like in
study plan for undergraduates. See Figure1 for more details. The drop down menu which will determine
the classes that the student can register will be at top.
Also
, the other struggle is that to find the write
language to code on, it seems like PHP

and
MySQL is the database software that can be written, but the
member has no knowledge about either of them what so ever.
1
Afterwards
, there will be list of classes
wher
e the department will provide, and student will select them or one from the drop down menu for each
registered semester. However, the project is at the stage where research is being done for finding the
restriction of drop down menu.
The project can be don
e by editing a list of classes for each curriculum
since other departments are in need of having a proper

application which can fix the problem.
See
appendixes b for more detail.

Design Requirements

In order to graduate with master’s degree, a student mu
st take 10 courses with filling the requirement of
30 credits master degree.
In summary, the student must take the 3 core required classes, 3 concentration
courses at least and the 4 graduate level courses.
For additional information about the concentratio
ns and
program, there are
3

departments in ECE which are listed at the following
;

1.

Electrical

engineering

2.

Computer

engineering

3.

Networked

information systems

The electrical engineering department requires three core courses that the student must take and th
ey are
listed at the following
;

1.

EE 602 Analytical Methods in Electrical Engineering

2.

EE 603 Linear System Theory

3.

EE 605 Probability and Stochastic Processes I

The EE department has the following concentrations which are listed at the following;

1.

Computer
Architectures and Digital Systems

2.

Embedded Systems

3.

Microelectronic Systems and Devices

4.

Signa
l

Processing for Communications

5.

Telecommunication Systems Engineering

6.

Wireless Communications

and
Autonomous Robotics

The computer engineering department requires
three core courses which are listed below;

1.

CPE 593

Applied Data Structures & Algorithms

2.

CPE 602

Applied Discrete Mathematics

3.

CPE 690

Introduction to VLSI Design


The concentrations of computer engineering department are listed b
elow;

1.

Computer Systems

2.

Data Communications and Networks


3.

Digital Systems Design


3


4.

Engineered Software Systems

5.

Image Processing & Multimedia


6.

Information Systems


7.

Information System Security

The Networked Information Systems department has the following core

courses required;

1.

NIS 560

Introduction to Networked Information Systems

2.

NIS 565

Management of Local Area Networks

3.

NIS 604

Analytical Methods for Networks

The Ne
tworked Information Systems department has the following concentr
ations;

1.

Data Communications and Networks

2.

Information Networks

3.

Multimedia Information Systems

4.

Multimedia Technologies


5.

Networked Information Systems: Business Practices


6.

Network Systems Technologies

7.

Secure Network Systems Design


The courses for each
concentration can be found at the source website and reference 2.

Expected Functionality and Performance

The functionality expected to be provided by Master’s student study plan application is outlined below.
First and foremost, the application will be able to provide instructions which will be too easy to
understand for the user who are master students. The
application will be instructed to user step by step.

Master’s student study plan application will also have functionality to notify its user if they are doing
something wrong; such as selecting a class which is not proper for their curriculum in order to
graduate
with master’s degree. For example, if the student is majoring in EE, and taking his or her concentrations
in EE concentrations, the student will not be able to take the other classes unless it fits the requirements.

Conclusion

The design specific
ations have not changed significantly since the project was introduced 2 weeks ago to
the group. The progress has been made on the project, completing the project successfully by the end of
the term should not be a problem. The group has an accurate timeli
ne schedule of what will be completed
thus far. The group has executed plan successfully thus far and will continue to do so. This will provide a
successfully completed project by the end of the term.
