Capstone Design Projects


During their last year, seniors conduct two-semester capstone design projects within ENGR 381/382/383 and ENGR 391/392/393.  Each project is industry-sponsored.  Through the Combined Capstone Lab, student teams have dedicated space for their projects and videoconferencing capability.  Each week, the student teams videoconference with their industry Sponsor.
