Electrical and Computer Engineering Senior Capstone Design

Capstone Design

The new two-semester sequence Capstone course is a year-long course divided into two semesters. Throughout the program, students learn about the engineering process, project management, risk analysis, customer needs, project requirements, rapid prototyping, testing, and troubleshooting. 


Students find real-world engineering projects challenging and fulfilling because they contribute to a real problem with a company or research group. In this program, students can choose a sponsored project ( by a company of an institute within the Ohio State University) or submit a proposal for a problem they want to solve. The Capstone program will sponsor student-defined projects.
