Senior Capstone Course

Capstone projects

Seniors in the bachelor's degree program take a year-long capstone course that emphasizes team collaboration and the application of modern engineering approaches to software  construction.

Each team develops an original, industry-strength software product. Projects are designed and implemented in the context of realistic engineering constraints and must follow effective engineering standards and practices.

Each year, students present their work at the end of the spring semester to faculty, classmates, industry representatives and community members. Starting in 2014, these presentations were part of Senior Capstone Innovation Day, a College of Engineering event showcasing student work from all five engineering departments at the University.
