About the Conference

Audience seated at tables during a presentation.Capstone Design Conference session in the Blackwell Hotel Ballroom at the Ohio State University.The goal of the Capstone Design Conference is to provide a forum for the extended capstone design community (faculty, administrators, industry representatives, and students) to share ideas about improving design-based engineering capstone design courses.

The conference schedule includes panels, poster sessions, workshops, local tours, and "birds of a feather" lunch conversations in which attendees who expressed common interests are seated together to network and share information.

The conference organizers are a devoted group of experienced professionals including capstone design faculty from a range of institutions across the United States.

The Capstone Design Conference maintains a unique virtual community of practice, The Capstone Design Community, which is a network of faculty, administrators, industry representatives, and students active in capstone engineering design courses. This web community includes a Design Hub which is a repository of resources for the community.
