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 very are appreciative of the industry professionals who dedicated time to the review of the 2020-2021 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.
