A semiannual showcase and celebration of student capstone projects
The College of Engineering, Design and Computing Capstone Design is a signature program across all five departments. Each engineering student takes the capstone course during their senior year. In this course, they design, build, analyze, protoype, test, and provide documentation for a product they have developed.
Each spring, the college hosts a Capstone Expo, showcasing projects from all five departments. In the fall, the college hosts a design expo for civil engineering students whose capstone experience is only a semester long. Students present to a panel of industry and alumni judges, competing for cash prizes made possible by generous donations from Donald and Karen White. Projects are evaluated on innovation, quality of the product, and the impact of the design.
In response to the current state of the world, the spring 2021 Capstone Expo will be hosted virtually through this website. While different from the traditional in-person event, hosting a virtual expo allows us the opportunity to share our students' innovations to a wider audience and showcase their work to the world.
