Capstone Design Showcase

Capstone Design Showcase

Each year, Capstone Senior Design students present at the Capstone Design Showcase, displaying their prototypes, designs and solutions developed for their projects. During the event, projects are evaluated by a judging team comprised of engineering professionals in both industry and academia. Capstone projects are evaluated based on criteria aligned with the learning outcomes outlined by ABET.  Awards are given for the best projects in the following categories:

  • Community Impact
  • Computerized System or Software Design
  • Machine Design
  • Manufactured System or Process Design
  • Medical Device or Biological Process Design
  • Sustainable Design


The 2021 Virtual Capstone Design Showcase will be held between April 26th – April 29th and hosted on the College of Engineering website.  The virtual showcase is a forum for students to present their year-long capstone design project solutions to the college, university, sponsors, and broader audience. During “Capstone Week” projects were be judged in their respective categories: Creative Machine Design, Manufactured System or Process Design, Medical Device or Biological Process Design, Computerized System or Software Design, Community Impact, and Sustainable Design.
