Engineering Capstone Expo at CU Denver

A showcase and celebration of student capstone projects

Capstone Design

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. 

Capstone Expo

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.

Why this matters to our students

  • Helps students to develop professional skills
  • Exposure to the design innovation process
  • Increases visibility for student work and outcomes
  • Connects students and sponsors for employment opportunities
  • Promotes cutting-edge design pedagogy
  • Enables interdisciplinary projects
  • Builds industry engagement across all departments
