Each year, Capstone 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

2024 Capstone Design Showcase

Join us on April 23, 2024, as we celebrate the achievements of our 2023-2024 Capstone Design students. At the showcase, more than 450 graduating engineering and computing students will present the prototypes, solutions, and innovations that their team has developed throughout their two- semester Capstone Design course.

During the week leading up to the showcase event, project information will also be featured on our website. Additionally, showcase attendees will be able to vote on their favorite project to be selected for the Viewer’s Choice Award. Viewer’s choice voting will be available until April 23 at 4:15 PM EST.
