CIS 400: Senior Design Project: Background Information

This guide provides resources supporting CIS 400 projects

E-book Collections

Listed below are discreet e-book collections providing reference and background information on topics in Electrical and Systems Engineering.  Additional titles in both print and electronic formats may be found using Franklin, our online catalog.

Finding Books

Books are a great source of background information on a topic.  One thing to be aware of with this type of literature, however, is that the information contained is not necessarily the most current, as the publication process for a book is lengthy.

The primary tool to search the Engineering Library's collection is our online catalog, Franklin, which is linked below.  Also provided are tools for searching beyond Penn's collections.
