Welcome to our ONLINE Mechatronics Engineering Capstone Design Symposium Showcase!

Our thirteenth annual Mechatronics Engineering Capstone Design Symposium was canceled the day of the symposium due to the spread of Covid-19 concerns.  

This exciting event provides our final-year student teams an opportunity to showcase their design projects to the general public, to industry partners and sponsors, and to the university community.
