Capstone Project

The Technology, Engineering, and Management Final (Capstone) Project course is the culmination of the T&M curriculum. It is taken in the spring semester of the second year. Projects are provided by corporate affiliates and deal with real problems of significant issue to the sponsoring company. These projects typically involve significant technical and managerial issues in areas of engineering, finance, accounting, and marketing.

Interdisciplinary teams of seven to eight students work with program faculty advisors and representatives of the sponsoring companies to develop detailed, implementable solutions. Student teams will typically travel to the sponsor’s location to learn about the business and meet company employees with whom they will work. At the end of the course, project presentations are provided by the student team to senior leaders of the sponsoring companies.

T&M Seminar provides a glimpse into the program


The Technology & Management Seminar (BADM/ENG 261) is a semester-long class offered to sophomores from eligible majors in Gies College of Business, The Grainger College of Engineering, College of Agricultural and Consumer and Environmental Sciences, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences..

The seminar covers current topics in technology and management presented by senior executives from a wide range of industries. These executives discuss industry and corporate challenges, career options and the non-linear path most of them took to wind up in their current roles, and other insights that are helpful for students considering careers that focus on innovation themes. The class format encourages dialogue and discussions between executives and students.

 Many students take this course to gain a fresh perspective on challenges regarding business and technological development. Though it is not a requirement for application into the T&M Program and is not any indication of acceptance into the Program, the seminar provides a preview of the types of content addressed by the T&M Program. Students may enroll in BADM/ENG 261 in the fall of their sophomore year.
