Interdisciplinary Capstone Design Program

The University of Idaho College of Engineering is ranked by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) as top seven in the nation for infusing real-world experiences into undergraduate engineering education through its interdisciplinary Senior Capstone Design Program.

Engineering students work in interdisciplinary teams on creative projects sponsored by industry partners, private individuals or U of I departments.

Courses in the program emphasize the design process and the creation of a thoughtfully engineered, tested and validated outcome or prototype.

Our annual Engineering Design EXPO, the longest-running student engineering innovation showcase in the Pacific Northwest, is the culmination of the capstone program. Seniors present their work at EXPO through professional exhibits and technical presentations.

Sponsor a Capstone Project

Interact with students, observe potential student hires to meet recruitment needs and introduce students to best practices in industry for design and manufacturing.
