2021 MIE Capstone Design Virtual Showcase (MIE 491 – Mechanical Engineering)

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

Registration for this event has now closed. If you missed registering and would like to join please email Matthesa Gregg, Engineering Design Programs Assistant, at matthesa@mie.utoronto.ca.

Join us as we celebrate the student projects that were created as a result of our Capstone program.

The Capstone program is an opportunity for fourth-year undergraduate students to work on design projects that meet specific client needs. The students work in teams to address real world problems presented by our industry partners. This showcase is the culmination of the program where students display their projects and prototypes.

Attendees will be able to learn more about our students’ innovative design projects and interact with the project teams.
