Sponsored Senior Design/Capstone Program

The Sponsored Senior Design/Capstone Program  provides an opportunity for a team of students to select a two-semester sponsored design project. Typically, the sponsoring organization proposes one or more project topics, establishes the primary goals and works with the design coordinator to develop the design requirements. The student team will collaboratively work with professional mentors from the sponsoring organization and faculty advisor(s) to develop and evaluate solutions that meet the design requirements. These projects offer students opportunities beyond the typical senior design project and provide more impactful outcomes. The students are expected to present periodic reviews on design concepts; analysis, testing and optimization results; detailed designs, and prototypes of hardware and software systems, to the sponsor. Prior to the commencement of the project, the sponsor, the students, and the institute will enter into an agreement that stipulates the project expectations, fees, and assignment of intellectual property rights.
