Showcasing Student Innovation with Industry Partners
The Dalhousie Engineering Capstone Conference 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 2018 Capstone Conference will feature 102 projects, presented by student groups representing all disciplines of engineering offered by the Faculty.
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.
The conference offers two opportunities for students to showcase their work (and two opportunities for attendees to learn about it):
- Breakout Sessions: full 10-15 minute presentations of each project, with post-presentation Q&A sessions.
- Poster Exposition: a two-hour showcase where all posters are on display, with students on hand to answer questions.
The breakout sessions are held concurrently in a morning (8:30am-10:30am) and afternoon period (1:30pm-4:30pm).
The poster exposition runs from 11am-1pm.
