The capstone project is a defining feature of the program. Over a tailored 10-week summer session, you will work in a team to provide engineering planning and design services to real-world clients. Projects will involve the investigation and analysis of an interdisciplinary environmental challenge, followed by the development of new knowledge and a sustainable design solution.  During this experience, you will have the unique opportunity to go into the community, define the engineering need, address the challenge, and deliver a design outcome back to the project stakeholders.
