Capstone Design Overview: All undergraduate students from across the VCU School of Engineering work over the fall and spring semesters of the Senior year in teams to design, build and test prototypes for actual, real-world problems and applications. This is strengthened by exposure of the students to topics related to theoretical background, design and development, regulatory, manufacturing, finance, product development and marketing presented by experts from industry and academia. This effort culminates in the Capstone Design Expo, a forum open to sponsors, faculty, students, benefactors of the School of Engineering and the general public. The entire Capstone Design output from the SoEgr is on display, with a series of awards for worthy projects.
