All these projects are truly exceptional in technical quality and are way beyond the expectation of an EE40 assignment. All winners will have an upgrade of 1/2 a grade on top on the normal course grade. Their videos and posters will be archived in the Cory 140 Projects Hall of Fame. Professor Cheung will be happy to write recommendation letters if they need one in the future.
