Students in the Bachelor of Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Bachelor of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering programs are required to complete capstone project courses specific to those programs.
Students in the Bachelor of Engineering, Electrical Engineering program must complete ELEX 7790 and ELEX 7890 and Students in the Bachelor of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering program must complete MECH 8190 and MECH 8290.
Capstone project courses cover techniques in project management, where students are required to plan, initiate and complete a complex engineering project. To accomplish this, students must draw on the knowledge and expertise in engineering theory and design they have developed throughout the program. Each team is assigned a faculty member advisor for the project. These courses are a valuable experience as they provide students the opportunity to be involved in solving interesting, real-world problems that have an industry connection.
The School of Energy hosts an annual Engineering Expo. The event features students’ projects from the engineering programs, including Electrical, Mechanical and Mechatronics and Robotics. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, Project Expo 2020 has been cancelled.
