Capstone projects are the culminating experience of all engineering undergraduates’ academic life, giving them an opportunity to apply the knowledge gained through coursework to solve a real-world problem through engineering design. Teams of seniors collaborate on projects in the fall and spring semesters of their final year. They design, build and test their innovations under the supervision of professors researching cutting-edge technology and professional engineers with engineering problems to solve.
Offering students majoring in a variety of engineering disciplines the opportunity to work together is an important component of making capstone projects more attuned to real-life experience. NMSU’s College of Engineering invites industry partnerships to sponsor interdisciplinary capstone projects to discover innovative solutions to their real-world problems and meet top engineering talent.
