Scratch-built vaccuum tube amplifier gives high-end sound

Dear colleagues, students, and friends : 
On this Thursday (February 11th), our talented 4th-year Electrical and Computer Engineering students will be taking over the first floor of Beamish-Munro Hall to showcase their capstone projects and compete for the top spots. Most teams have been working on these amazing sets of hardware and software products for more than a year since their inception in our ELEC390 course. Some projects have had external support/sponsorships, some have had major research components, and some are ripe for new ventures!
Projects will be on display from 10:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. to be followed by awards. These will be adjudicated by a team of Guest Judges invited from industry. We also pick and present the first-year, second-year, and third-year Choice Awards. So all students in years 1-3: come out and vote for your favourite work! 
This year, we also have the inaugural "Capstone Video Competition". Teams are encouraged to take part in the optional competition by submitting a 90-second video presenting and/or marketing their final products. This is due towards the end of the term (exact date set by ELEC 49X) with the winners announced soon after. 
All are welcome to join us this Thursday to witness the talents and capabilities of our 2016 teams between 10:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. FEAS Marcomm (Marketing and Communications) will report on the day along with photos and videos: so spiffy up!
