UTDesign Capstone Overview (With Subtitles)
UTDesign Capstone Project Teams are typically comprised of 4 to 6 students, a UTD faculty advisor, and a company technical mentor. These teams create a project specification, ideate potential solutions, research and develop a preliminary design, mature the design through a critical and final design review process, build a proof of concept to the design, and test the “product” to verify initial specifications and make recommendations for future designs. Each student works an average of 10 hours per week on their project (15 hours per week in the summer).
UTDesign Capstone is the corporate-sponsored capstone senior design program. At more than 30,000 square feet, the studio is one of the largest in the country, program leaders say. The studio houses 75 project stations. The studio includes a computer lab, machine shop, seven conference rooms (including a Cisco TelePresence room), five secured project lab rooms, a seminar room and more than $550,000 in state-of-the-art equipment donated by local companies.
