Interdisciplinary Capstone Design Program

The University of Idaho College of Engineering is ranked by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) as one of the top seven schools in the nation for infusing real-world experiences into undergraduate engineering education. Participating in the senior capstone design program offers experience collaborating with valued industry partners and an educational experience students wouldn’t otherwise receive in traditional engineering curriculum.

Throughout the Capstone Design Program students work in teams on projects sponsored by industry, private individuals or sources internal to the U of I. The courses involve two consecutive courses and emphasize the design process and the creation of a thoughtfully engineered, tested and validated outcome or prototype.

Engineering Design EXPO, the longest running showcase of undergraduate engineering innovation in the Pacific Northwest, is the culmination of the U of I Engineering senior capstone design program. Seniors from interdisciplinary programs participate in presenting capstone work at EXPO either through a professional exhibit or technical presentation.
