What is U Capstone?
U Capstone is an eight-month design course for senior engineering students. Students work in teams of four to six members throughout two semesters to complete projects provided by industrial and faculty sponsors. Through coursework and interaction with their faculty advisor, teams learn to follow a structured design approach in completing their projects. They interact with and receive feedback from the industrial sponsor to make sure the work meets the sponsors needs. Students allocate approximately 10 hours each week for Capstone and are expected to provide working prototypes and project documentation at the end of the two semester sequence.
