CEE Capstone Projects

Our CEE graduates have a multi-disciplinary, capstone design experience in their final year. It is an intense 15-week long experience. For the past six years, almost all of the capstone projects have been service-learning projects where students work with local communities, towns and non-profits on their CEE related needs. Each project encompasses at least two sub-disciplines of CEE. We do our best to select projects that offer a solid CEE design experience and at the same time promote sustainability. For each project, students consider multiple design alternatives and suggest recommendations based on costs and social and environmental impacts.  They write comprehensive technical reports and make presentations to external evaluators, faculty, fellow students and community partners.
