Since August 2020, senior engineering student teams have been working diligently to complete ten engineering capstone design projects in the following three areas: Renewable Energy Technologies for Sustainable Impact, Environmental Solutions for Restoring Our Ecosystems, and Biomedical Engineering Innovations for Saving Lives. The time has now come for the teams to present their efforts in the first annual engineering capstone symposium! In alignment with Wake Forest University’s motto of “Pro Humanitate” (For Humanity), the Capstone Design Experience is envisioned and designed to bring real-world and authentic engineering projects to our engineering students. We desire for positive impact to be made, for innovative solutions to be produced, and for equity and justice to be reflected in the technological advancements that our students make.
We are extremely proud of the work that our inaugural class of engineering seniors have completed, and we are grateful to all of our faculty, staff, clients, and technical experts who have given their time and expertise to support our inaugural capstone design projects. We invite you to join us in celebrating our students’ achievements with both virtual student presentations via Zoom, and an in-person prototyping showcase at our newly renovated Wake Downtown Engineering Spaces. Unfortunately, due to current COVID restrictions, only those who are affiliated with WFU will be able to attend the in-person showcase. However, we will be broadcasting each team’s showcase via Zoom, so all who desire will be able to participate in this event. If you are interested in attending either of these events, please complete the following FORM. Due to security reasons, you must complete the RSVP to receive Zoom links for the virtual presentations and virtual prototype showcases
