Capstone Calendar
While the Engineering Design & Innovation Showcase is Speed School’s capstone event for several departments in the spring, industry capstone projects also take place during the summer and fall semesters. Here is the breakdown of departments with capstone courses by semester that conduct industry capstone projects.

Fall Semester

  • Bioengineering
  • Computer Science & Engineering
  • Electrical & Computer Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

Spring Semester

  • Chemical Engineering
  • Computer Science & Engineering
  • Electrical & Computer Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

Summer Semester

  • Computer Science & Engineering

Civil & Environmental Engineering also has a capstone, but we do not supply them with industry projects due to their ABET guidelines.

Employers can submit a spring project proposal from now through November 1, 2019.

Senior Spotlight 
The Engineering Design & Innovation Showcase is Speed School’s capstone design requirement for seniors from our various departments. Held during the spring semester, this competitive exhibition features student teams who collaborated together with their project partners to develop prototypes or solutions for real-world challenges. Through this experience, you will gain vital knowledge that makes you workforce-ready upon graduation.

The Showcase also includes the top six teams from the ENGIII Cornerstone Project, a multidisciplinary, team-based venture that all first-year engineering students take. Our Cornerstone engineering challenge focuses on integration and application of fundamental engineering skills, and this project experience prepares you early in your academic career for your senior-year capstone endeavor.
