Industry Partnered Senior Design Projects

What are senior capstone design projects?

Senior design courses are required for undergraduate students and are the culminating experience that allows them to put into practice the curriculum that they have been learning. Students in capstone are typically 1-2 semesters from graduating and will have already completed three semesters of an engineering co-op. Students in the capstone course will be divided into teams of 4-5 members and will have 14-weeks to complete the industry project.

The Benefits of Partnering with a Capstone Team:

    • Move forward your innovative idea or back-burner project
    • Interact with potential future employees
    • Gain a fresh set of ideas/designs from talented students
    • Support the J.B. Speed School of Engineering & engineering education
