I. Introduction
Projects for engineering students give an edge over the race of recruitment to work hard to ensure a
good career. In spite of employment practices in recent times, students are progressively taking up
projects to pad up their skill-set. Engineering projects help students to learn and acquire practical
knowledge. Despite of theory concept they acquire, various industries also need to know their capacity
to complete projects using their specific initiatives. Thus, we recommend students to realize
engineering projects in their four years of engineering and try to present as many white papers as
possible. Students who give importance to their course projects are expected to learn how to:
• Work in teams including multidisciplinary teams
• Build a major design experience based on the knowledge and skills acquired in the course work
• Build a major design experience incorporates appropriate engineering standards and multiple
realistic constraints
• Apply both analysis and synthesis in the engineering design process, resulting in designs
that meet the desired needs
In the design process, both creativity and criticism are essential. The followings are the seven steps that
students should consider while designing their projects:
• Recognition of the need and identifying opportunities: Every project begins with recognition
that needs improvement. These needs may be obvious or hidden to be revealed by
investigation, surveys or research.
• Definition of the design problem: It is a major task requires gathering information about the
problem.
• Definition of the design criteria and constraints: While the problem is being defined, the design
criteria and constraints must be defined
a. Design criteria are performance standards to be met by the design
b. Design constraints are limitations placed on the designer, the final design or manufacturing
process. Examples of possible constraints include accessibility, aesthetics, codes,
constructability, cost, ergonomics, extensibility, functionality, interoperability, legal
considerations, maintainability, manufacturability, marketability, policy, regulations,
schedule, standards, sustainability, or usability.
c. Risk analysis
• The design loop: design is a repetitive process of:
a. Synthesis (Brainstorming – Generating new ideas)
b. Analysis (Breaking ideas – find expected results)
c. Decision-making (Deciding the best alternative)
• Optimization: Design team must ask themselves if it is the optimum design. Optimum is the
best design that can be achieved at reasonable cost. The proposed design is judged against the
design criteria
• Evaluation: Design team should hold a design review to approve drawings and specifications
before they are released. If an optimum design cannot be achieved, the design team might
revise the problem definition, the design criteria or the constraints in order to achieve the
optimal solution or prototype.

II. Project Description
In our daily life we interact with all kind of electronic devices. Amplifier electronic
circuits are used in almost all applications in our daily life. Consider a sensor that
produce a very small voltage, e.g. 50µv range, and has a relatively high output
resistance, e.g. in the 10 kΩ range. The voltage is to be amplified and connected to a
resistive load in the range of a few hundred ohms.
You are given the opportunity to do an internship at a well-known electronics company,
electronics division. You are asked to design and analyze an amplifier system using a
well-known MOSFET, available technology and CAD tools.
The circuit that will be designed is the first stage (Common source amplifier (Figure ))
of a multistage amplifier using 2n7000 device and following some specification as
mentioned in the table below (Table 1).
Figure 1: Schematic circuit of Common Source amplifier
To design the circuit, some specifications should be respected (Table 1), with X is the group number.
Hand calculation and P-spice simulation should be done and compared. For the simulation part, some
helpful files are posted on Moodle. Finally, a Prototype should be built and tested in DC.
Table 1: Project specifications

III. ABET Learning Outcome
The aim of this project is to
• Identify and correctly utilize the external lead structure and basic electrical
characteristics of The MOSFET and other electronic devices. [1]
• Analyze and design d.c. bias circuits. [1,2]
• Use a CAD tool (e.g., SPICE) in circuit analysis and design. [1,2,6]
Work within a team, develop hands-on experience, draw conclusion and communicate
results through the offered course project. [2,3,5]
IV. Project Management & Deliverables
This project is divided into the following deliverables.
Deliverable 1: Project report (due date is end of week 11):
• Students of each class need to form project groups (group of 3 students)
• Explicitly answer the following questions in the report:
For the below questions (from 1 to 4) the student’s name should be mentioned next to
the question.
1- What are the design requirements for your project? State them clearly.
2- Identify the design constraints that are imposed by the impact of your project on
public health, safety, welfare, as well as, global, cultural, social, environmental, and
economic impacts. (Select at least two of these items).
3- What are the steps (process, method) you followed to get your solution? (Taking
into consideration the requirements mentioned in Q1 and the impact on the
domains mentioned in Q2? Describe them clearly.
4- What are the other solutions considered for this project? And what are the
comparative results with the existing solution considering Risks, constraints and
making appropriate trade-offs?
• Install P-spice following the tutorial on Moodle.
• Draw ID-VGS for the transistor 2n7000 for VDS = (0.05 + 0.1 * X) V and extract the value
of the threshold voltage.
• Draw ID-VDS for the transistor 2n7000 for a given value of VGS and extract the value of
Kn.
• Design the circuit following the specifications mentioned in Table 1.
• Run the simulation and compare the DC and AC results with the hand calculation and
check the results meets with the specifications.
• Try to change the design if the required value of Av is not achieved.
• Build your prototype, check the DC values and compare them with the hand calculation
and simulation. Comment.
• A scientific report must be written and submitted. The provided template should be
used. The report should begin with a discussion of system architecture. In the
Page6
conclusions, discuss the difficulties and constraints encountered, changes you would
like to make, and lessons learned from the project. In this part, risk analysis should be
done.
• The report should include the full analysis of the project.
Deliverable 2: Prototype (due date is end of week 12):
• A prototype demo must be done by each group to show and explain the operation and
the function of each part of the project.
Deliverable 3: Oral Presentation (due date is week 12):

V. Turnitin
Turnitin is a web-based solution that lets AUM faculty and AUM students check written work for
improper citation or misappropriated content. You may be assigned a username and a password to be
able to upload your assignments online, when and if requested. If you face any technical problem,
please contact IT at AUM.
VI. APA Style
AUM adopts the APA writing style for all its academic programs. AUM students need to use this style
for their assignments. The following web site is of value for students:
http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/. Students are also encouraged to visit the AUM
Writing Lab to receive help and guidance on all APA-related questions.
VII. Academic Honesty and Integrity Assurance
One of the signs that the course material has been properly understood is honesty when accomplishing
the assignments. Lack of academic integrity (e.g. plagiarism, copying another person’s work, the use of
unauthorized aids on examinations, cheating, facilitating acts of academic dishonesty by others) will
Page7
not be tolerated. Therefore, if students include ideas, sentences, or other material that are not theirs
in their work, they must properly quote the source(s). Students are encouraged to consult with the
instructor if they have any questions on the issues of academic integrity or technical formatting of the
references.
Upon suspicion and doubt of the authenticity of the work submitted, the Instructor has the right to ask
the student to verify her/his work. This can be done through, but not limited to, repeating the work, oral
examination or discussion, alternative or similar on spot class assignment, pop quiz, or any other action
deemed necessary. If the student fails to prove the authenticity of the work, then the Instructor will apply
the academic misconduct rules as mentioned in the AUM Student Handbook which may include awarding
the work a zero grade.
Students are expected and encouraged to be honest and to maintain the highest standards of academic
integrity in their academic work and assignments at the University. Any act of Academic Dishonesty
may result in severe consequences for violations range from zero grades given for the assignments,
failing the course, and suspension from the University. Students will refrain from any academic
dishonesty or misconduct including, but not limited to:
• Upon suspicion and doubt of the authenticity of the work submitted, the Instructor has the
right to ask the student to verify her/his work. This can be done through, but not limited to,
oral examination or discussion, or any other action deemed necessary. If the student fails to
prove the authenticity of the work, then the Instructor will apply the academic misconduct
rules as mentioned in the AUM Student Handbook
• A zero grade will be given to all students that share exactly the same results: You will also be
held responsible if someone else copies your work – unless you can demonstrate that you have
taken reasonable precautions against copying.
• Any violation of the AUM standards will be taken as a violation to AUM policy and can lead to
penalties. If you wonder whether a course of action violates this policy, simply ask in advance
and please refer to the undergraduate AUM Student Handbook.
For a detailed description of academic misconduct, please refer to the AUM Student Handbook.
VIII. Copyrights
Students are expected to adhere to copyright practices, refer to the undergraduate AUM Student
Handbook.
IX. Project and team-based work
The Project component of the course, if exist, is essential to passing this course. The project shows
competency in understanding and applying the course objectives and achieving the learning outcomes.
The project should allow the student to investigate, apply, research, and practice real-life business
situations. It is expected that each student to fully and actively participate in the project as an effective
team member. A project document will be distributed later in the semester with details about the
project.
For all group related work, the entire team is responsible for the team outcome and the deliverables,
except for the specific parts of the project that may be graded individually depending on the project’s
requirement and as communicated in the project document.
