PC Hardware Assessment

This project includes a complete course design for teaching the course with related learning materials. It also includes a sample schedule for delivering the course. **** This is the first of a two part capstone course project that will require students to use the information that they have gained throughout the first semester to collaborate on a group project. Students will be expected to develop a plan to produce a computerized machine by assessing their hardware needs, types of processors, circuit boards and controllers to be used as well as understand budgeting and invoicing procedures. Students will be able to apply this planning phase of the project in the second semester course, PC Hardware Interfacing.
