Dalhousie Engineering Capstone Conference


We are excited to announce that the 7th annual Dalhousie Engineering Capstone Conference (DECC) will be held on Sexton Campus on Tuesday, April 11th, 2023, from 1-4pm.

The event is being relaunched as a poster exposition only; visitors can tour our new buildings and see displays and demonstrations of our students' capstone projects. Wander through the Emera IDEA Building and the Richard Murray Design Building, where all students will be sharing their posters.


DECC 2022

Last year's Dalhousie Engineering Capstone Conference, which took place on Tuesday, April 5th, 2022 at the Westin Nova Scotian. Out of consideration for the health and safety of our students and attendees, this year's poster expo did not take place in person.

 All posters from last year's conference, as well as the event programme and recordings, may be viewed using the "2022 Capstone Conference" link below or on the sidebar.

Showcasing Student Innovation with Industry Partners

The Dalhousie Engineering Capstone Conference (DECC) is the largest event for senior year engineering students, incorporating all engineering disciplines within the Faculty. The conference gives students the opportunity to showcase how their Capstone Projects integrate course work and engineering design skills to provide innovative solutions to local industry partners.

The conference is a celebration of the innovation landscape that is developing in Nova Scotia; it highlights students who will go on to work as professional engineers, continue to research through postgraduate studies, or pursue design ideas through Dalhousie’s ideaHUB and its innovation-based programs.  

How to Get Involved

The Capstone Conference offers numerous opportunities for industry partners to get involved:

  • Become a corporate sponsor
  • Act as an industry judge
  • Propose a Capstone Project for the Class of 2023
