About

Capstone Design Program is a culminating experience offered to senior undergraduate students for all engineering majors (Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Engineering Physics) in the Department of Engineering and Physics at the University of Central Oklahoma. The Capstone Design Program involves two consecutive Fall (ENGR 4882 Senior Design I) and Spring (ENGR 4892 Senior Design II) courses. Throughout this Capstone Design Program experience the students work in teams on a project assigned to them, usually one of their top three choices. Projects typically originate from industry, non-profits research institute, or from sources internal to the University (e.g. faculty research).

Each Senior Design Project Team typically consist of 3~4 students. The students may choose any project so long as it has a component that corresponds to their majors. By working in teams they develop leadership skills and group dynamics; dealing with scheduling conflicts, meeting weekly deliverables and deadlines; and communication among team members, project sponsors, and course instructors.

The capstone design course provides students the opportunity to work with real-world, open-ended, interdisciplinary challenges proposed by industrial and research project sponsors. They learn and apply the engineering design process: defining functional requirements, conceptualization, analysis, selection, physical prototyping, and testing of their designs. At the end of spring semester, the students demonstrate an engineered and tested system/product, which they defend in front of the panel of experienced and expert professional’s judges. A member from each team participates in a three minute pitch contest where they explain commercial point of view of their product. Both product demonstration and pitch event is open to public. A final comprehensive report is then submitted by each team documenting their prototype as built and tested and the associated design, realization and testing processes. Failure to deliver a finished prototype adhering to specifications by the end of the cycle may result in failing the course.
