Capstone Design


Capstone projects challenge fourth-year engineering students to apply the formal knowledge they’ve gained during their undergraduate studies to solve real-world problems. Students combine the technical skills and hands-on experience they acquired in school to design a project related to their chosen discipline. 

The team-based projects are the culmination of the undergraduate program and a requirement for degree completion. Students are graded on their projects during Capstone Design Demonstration Day held at the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation. 

Capstone Design Demonstration Day
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
