New Capstone Sequence

New Capstone Sequence At XXXX University a new structure for the capstone course has been implemented. The course uses industry sponsored, multidisciplinary design and build projects. The capstone course takes place over two semesters. The first semester (winter) is used for design and the second semester (summer) is primarily focused on build and test. The new structure was successfully rolled out the winter and summer of 2017. This paper lays out the framework used and the lessons learned. In particular past years the student teams had difficulty scheduling faculty to attend their design reviews. The new framework removed much of the lower impact time faculty spent with the students and concentrated on the select items where faulty have a much higher impact.
