Capstone Design

Capstone Design is an opportunity for 4th year Engineering students to demonstrate their ability to apply knowledge they have gained throughout their program. It is an eight-month effort to devise innovative solutions to real-world problems. At the end of second semester, students showcase their research and discoveries at the annual FEAS Capstone Exhibition and Competition.

The objective of Capstone is to expose engineering students to the engineering design process by creatively solving open-ended real world industry-driven engineering problems. They use state of the art engineering tools and incorporate engineering standards.

Engineering students focus on a variety of considerations with respect to their engineering designs, such as: economic, environmental, sustainability, manufacturability, ethical, health & safety, social, and political.

Capstone aims to improve students’ ability to work in teams, participate in project planning and scheduling, give presentations, and be able to deal with uncertainties in a professional manner.

Capstone Exhibition and Competition

This years Capstone Exhibition and Competition will feature more than 35 projects ranging in topic from identity recognition for vehicles, to a greenhouse monitoring system, from final year Engineering students. For an overview of this years projects, click here.

For more information on all the research projects that will be presented, please  join us on Friday, April 5th from 10am - 2pm in the UA, UB and ERC Atriums to come and explore for yourself!
