Team-based capstone research and development project. The purpose of the course is to develop applied professional problem-solving skills. There are no pre-existing solutions paths, no standard recipes to follow. Students apply research and design, select their own tools and find their own solution.
Students will work in teams with an academic supervisor and an external mentor, to solve engineering problems set by an end-user: usually an engineering company which sponsors the project. The student team may use knowledge from any of the courses taken previously in the degree.During the project, students will follow problem-solving processes used in industry. They will research the problem, study existing solutions, develop a list of requirements and design a new, better solution. Most projects build and test a prototype.In addition to the team project, training will be given in professional skills including planning and project management, budgeting, risk assessment, communication with clients, oral and written communication, personal time management, job-seeking skills, creative and critical thinking, and leadership.This course meets the criteria for Community and Work-Integrated Learning (CWIL) Courses.
