Submitting Project Proposals

Do you have a ‘Why Not Change the World’ idea but no way to move forward? Consider engaging a multidisciplinary Capstone student design team to assist.

Faculty and Staff:  Could your research project benefit from a senior Capstone Design team to design test equipment, enhance a process, or evaluate an idea that your grad students are too busy to address?
Students:   Are you a member of a team or club that has a design challenge you’re not quite sure how to handle?  Do you have a past Arch away experience that could be transitioned into a multidisciplinary Capstone project? 
Potential Sponsors:  Do you have a great project idea but no way to move forward? Consider engaging a multidisciplinary Capstone student design team to assist!

If so, please complete and submit the form in the link below with key information about your proposed project. Submission due date is June 15th for the Fall 2024 semester. This will allow sufficient time for us to process and review!

All project submittals will be evaluated by the Design Lab team. Project selection is based on:

  • Meaningful design content
  • Resource / fabrication requirements
  • Multidiscipline design content
  • Availability of a faculty or external “sponsor” to mentor the team
