Program details

Our senior-level students will work in teams on real-world projects brought forth by company representatives. At the end of the term, student teams will present their work to company representatives and department faculty. Students will receive a grade from the capstone professor based in part on their work on the project. Depending on the scope and discipline, projects may require one to two semesters to complete.
