The Capstone design project courses (i.e. courses labelled MAAE4907X, and ECOR 4907X) are created to foster teamwork, communication, technical skill development and design work. All students must be 4th year eligible to enroll in a MAAE4907X / ECOR 4907X course and this 4th year status will be determined after course marks are submitted for the winter term. Once marks are submitted, project registration will be available, and you will be sent an email when registration becomes available with instructions.

However, due to the malfunction of the sound facility in the MINTO 2000 during the Capstone Information Session on Friday, March 17, 2023, the sound files recorded had the volume too low to be auditable. For more information regarding individual project, please contact the lead engineer using the email addresses provided below.
The MAE Capstone Project-Marking Guidelines are provided to Lead Engineers and students involved in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Capstone Design Projects as guidance to carry out and interpret performance evaluations on the projects.
|To apply for a small project with a team of 4-8 students, a MAE faculty member must be found and subsequently, a proposal must be prepared and submitted to the capstone committee no later than the last day of the fall term (31 Dec.). The proposal shall include objectives, scope of work, stream/specialization of the students involved, space requirement, environment/safety, and budget consideration (external support committed as there is no department funding provided). The proposal will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
The date of submission must be observed to avoid redundant registrations.
If you have any questions please contact the Capstone Projects Coordinator – Prof. Xiao Huang (email@example.com).
