April 3, 2017 – This year, 116 fourth-year undergraduate students from various engineering programs formed 24 multidisciplinary design teams to take on industry challenges, as part of U of T Engineering’s Multidisciplinary Capstone Project (MCP) course. The unique MCP course requires students to apply technical knowledge in a multidisciplinary environment. After 8 months of collaborating with their industry clients, they displayed their final design solutions and results at the Multidisciplinary Capstone Design Projects (MCP) Showcase on March 30.
The Multidisciplinary Capstone Design Project (MCP) Course, now in its fourth year, has enabled 350 students from across all undergraduate engineering programs in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering to work together on real-world projects proposed by industry partners.
This year’s industry clients include Astronauts for Hire, Bombardier Aerospace, Defence Research & Development Canada (DRDC), Drone Delivery Canada, Guycan, Kinectrics Inc. NASA, Pratt and Whitney Canada, RBC Capital Markets, United Steel Workers and more.
