Student Design Projects Description

A typical description of a senior design capstone in Applied Science begins with “an original effort by a student to investigate and solve a complex problem resulting in an independent design-and-build project of substantial technological sophistication. The completion of the baccalaureate thesis includes proof-of-design, working demonstration and scientific documentation culminating in presentation and defense.” Since 1974, programs have required senior projects as capstone experiences for most of the degree programs. Since the initiation UC’s General Education Capstone in 2001, all Applied Science baccalaureate programs require a formal capstone experience as part of a degree granting program in the college.
