14.000, 14.100  Capstone 1 & 2, Undergraduate (Senior)  Jan- Aug 2016;

 

The Capstone project brings together students from different pillars to work in design teams, contributing their respective expertise and skills to solve real-world challenges. It also provides them with a realistic design situation where projects usually span multiple disciplines and require team-based efforts to create a solution. A Capstone project is an industry-based project which gives senior year undergraduate students the opportunity to practically apply the knowledge, principles, concepts and techniques they have learned to solve real-world, multi-discipline challenges. It aims to give students a holistic, integrative design experience that requires an extensive range of technological design skills and knowledge such as:

  • Identifying needs
  • Transforming needs into technical specifications or design strategies
  • Applying modelling techniques and evaluating design alternatives 
  • Working as a team to resolve challenges in designing and producing a solution 
  • Validating solutions to meet specifications and needs

Students work on the project mainly on-campus with SUTD faculty as instructors and Capstone Partners as mentors during the period January to August. It is a two-term integrated design experience in the senior year. The faculty instructors and mentors will jointly supervise and guide the project team to fulfill the project scope and deliverables. At the end of the project period, a final report will be produced and shared with Capstone Partners.
