UNH Capstone Program 2021
The Civil and Environmental Engineering department at UNH requires that all graduating seniors participate in our Capstone design experience. This year-long class presents students with an opportunity to work as part of a team to apply engineering, communication, and management skills. At this time, we are contacting companies, municipalities, and public agencies to request proposals for engineering projects for the course.
Projects that include multiple engineering disciplines (i.e., structural, geotechnical, environmental, water resources) are strongly encouraged. The project could be one that your firm has completed, is under construction, or entails investigation of potential alternatives for a project being considered.
Recent projects undertaken in the course include investigation of a landfill expansion, design of a sewer pump station, an airport runway reconstruction, forensic investigation of a bridge collapse, and an alternatives investigation for a replacement bridge. If you are interested in participating, we ask that you complete an on-line form for each project.
Capstone Program Information
- Please submit projects no later than August 25, 2021. This will allow for the scheduling of the project presentations.
- The commitment to the program will vary depending upon the size and complexity of the project. However, the time commitment is approximately 1 day total per month; this includes meetings, correspondence, review of submission, etc.
- For this class, the project sponsors are to be considered “clients” by the student teams. As such, the student teams are expected to provide timely communication, progress reports, etc. to their client as would be expected for real world projects.
- A faculty member will be assigned to each team. In addition to providing grades for the assignment and technical guidance, the Faculty Project Advisor will work with the project sponsor to manage the student team.
Matt Low from Hoyle, Tanner & Associates will again be assisting with the overall development of the class. Please feel free to contact Matt (email@example.com) if you have any questions about the Capstone Program.
