Capstone Conference Sponsorship

We are inviting you to partner with Dalhousie’s Faculty of Engineering in supporting the 4th Annual Dalhousie Engineering Capstone Conference (DECC) at the Westin Nova Scotian on Monday, April 6th, 2020.

The Dalhousie Engineering Capstone Conference is the largest and most engaging event for the senior year classes, incorporating all engineering disciplines. The students’ final design presentations and poster competition will showcase how the projects integrate course work and engineering design skills, providing innovative solutions for many local industrial partners.  It is also an opportunity for companies like yours to demonstrate their commitment to engineering at Dalhousie, experiential education, and innovation and economic development in our region.

Every year the Dalhousie Engineering Capstone Conference attracts over 1,000 community and corporate stakeholders, including students, faculty, media, industry, our Nova Scotia engineering community and the public.  

We are inviting key companies and valued members of our community to sponsor this important event. All contributions will go towards DECC to ensure it is a quality event for our students and a great opportunity for students and industry to meet.
