Senior and Capstone Design Project courses are widely adapted in engineering and computer science curricula to prepare students for the industry and give them the opportunity to work in real-world projects. One of the motivations behind offering such courses is to satisfy the ABET criteria emphasizing the importance of functioning in multi-disciplinary teams. Senior project courses in computer science/engineering are usually designed to be one or two semester-long and they traditionally involve large-scale software systems development. There is also a tendency to assign hardware/software integration projects to prepare students for the competitive job market. This paper introduces an innovative approach to enable students to work in multi-disciplinary teams and develop large-scale software/hardware systems. Programming language and operating system independent component-based software development is extensively discussed and explained with some complex senior project examples.
