Capstone course seeks to inspire humanitarian-focused engineers

“The senior capstone design course is a culminating experience for undergraduate seniors in the Penn State College of Engineering, where interdisciplinary teams take an idea from concept to reality. By fusing their academic knowledge and experiences to tackle a real-world problem, the students prepare themselves as the next generation of engineers.

“To help emphasize this message, a special section of the senior capstone design course in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) seeks to imbue an altruistic purpose to the capstone project.”
