RESS Capstones

Perhaps the best class of the entire RESS program, the culminating Capstone course (EME 589) is one of the most engaging experiences of the degree. Within the last two semesters of students’ time in the program, they engage in a project that consists of a semester-long effort of a team of final-year RESS students, carrying out the following phases of effort: project definition, working with stakeholders, preliminary design, technology selection towards a detailed design, and a presentation of the final report followed by evaluation. Deliverables from the project include a full written report by the team and intended for the client, accompanying appendices of calculations and related documents as well as individual work, and an oral presentation overview of project findings.
