Capstone Design Conference
Each year Penn State Harrisburg’s School of Science, Engineering, and Technology students culminate their undergraduate studies with a Capstone Design Project. The senior projects for Penn State Harrisburg engineering students are a long-standing tradition, where they are given opportunity to combine classroom learning with real-life applications, as well as collaborate with industry sponsors.
More than 50 projects in various disciplines are on display at this annual conference. In addition to project presentations, students also exhibit and demonstrate the projects to all guests attending the event. Guests include student colleagues, faculty/staff members, industry, advisory board members, sponsors, family, and friends. Local high schools are also invited to attend this event to see first-hand what a career in a STEM-related field might look like and have the opportunity to speak directly to our graduating seniors to learn more about individual programs within STEM.
The Capstone Design Conference is supported in perpetuity by an endowment created by TE Connectivity.
