UPDATE: The Mechatronics Engineering Capstone Design Symposium will not be run as a physical event this year.

In order to mitigate the risks associated with the possible spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the format of the Faculty of Engineering’s Capstone Design Symposia are being modified on a department by department basis. Students are asked to connect directly with their Capstone coordinator for the most current updates.

External guests have been asked not to visit campus and are encouraged to instead check out the 2020 project abstracts and photos from previous events.

We encourage everyone on campus to take preventive measures such as avoiding shaking hands and touching your face along with frequent and thorough handwashing as outlined by Health Canada.
