TLP - Capstone Project
A capstone is a project taken on by engineers at the university during their fourth year. These projects are usually sponsored by an outside client and provide a final integrated, real-world, hands-on experience relating to students’ fields of study.
The Systems and Information Engineering Department (SIE) helped pioneer capstone projects in the United States and has a strong record of externally-supported capstone projects dating back to the late 1980’s. SIE alumni invariably site the capstone as the most important part of their undergraduate education. A great thing about the TLP is that the SIE capstone model is becoming interdisciplinary by including students in the TLP from electrical and computer engineering.
