Call for Capstone Projects

YOU BRING THE PROBLEMS. WE BRING THE SOLUTIONS.

During their final year, most engineering students must complete a major, year-long capstone project.  In small teams, they use the knowledge and skills gained during their studies, to solve challenging real-world problems proposed by community partners like you.

At the end of the course, you are presented with design models and potentially a working prototype as a solution to your problem. 

HOW DOES THIS BENEFIT YOU? 

  • Work with the next generation before you hire
  • Fresh new ideas and perspectives 
  • Enthusiastic team of students working on your project, advised by experienced, UBC-recruited professional mentors, and faculty to help with complex technical issues
  • Low-cost exploration of risky business ideas 
  • Explore products or services that are outside of your organization’s current business plan
  • Connect with UBC academic community
  • Approximately one thousand person-hours of work dedicated to solving your problem
  • Access to world-class research facilities
