Student Projects

The fourth-year Capstone design project is an integral and important part of the undergraduate program in Carleton’s Faculty of Engineering and Design. These projects foster an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for real world problem solving. For students, fourth year projects are much like working on a startup, serving as an opportunity to explore new ideas which require ongoing commitment, critical thinking and improvisational skill.

Industry partners help shape and support Capstone design projects through mentorship of student teams, submitting projects and providing financial support.
