The undergraduate programs in the Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering culminate in a significant design experience delivered through a Capstone Design course. Students carry out the design and economic assessment of a major, environmentally-sound process in chemical and/or biological engineering. Students work in teams under the supervision of a faculty advisor and, when possible, mentored by a practicing professional engineer from industry to ensure relevance and quality.
The Capstone Design project is a unique and tremendously beneficial experience for students and we are very appreciative of the industry professionals who dedicated time to the review of the Capstone projects and who provided valuable feedback to students. We also thank the industry sponsors for assisting students in the development and successful completion of their projects.
