Undergraduate Capstone

Capstone is a fourth year course running from September to April during which students work in teams to solve engineering problems.

The course is designed to allow students to use knowledge gained from engineering courses taken throughout their program, including those in design and engineering communication, to successfully conduct self-guided engineering design for a specific project of their choice with the assistance of a faculty advisor.
