I agree naperlou - for most engineering curriculums I think it is required. My husband and i have served as judges in the past and hubby is also an advisor on senior projects for a local college occasionally. More typically, we see these projects done in teams which also gives the students a taste of what it is like to work in real world industry by learning to work together on projects and how to deal with group dynamics.

The BREATHE devices sounds incredible, especially with the ability to locate it when it becomes lost. My sister-in-law continually loses hers, which can be dangerous in certain situations.

Elizabeth, thse types of projects are very important in engineering curricula.  As an IEEE member I have had the privelage of judging projects at local universities.  Actually, I think this should be required.
