Design. Create. Solve.
Guelph Engineering students experience Engineering Design from the moment they walk in the door. At Guelph, you will take part in our integrated approach to engineering design starting immediately in your first semester. Your design experience continues to build in each year of your program and many 3rd and 4th year courses have a large design component built directly into the curriculum.
Capstone Design Project
In your final year, you will work with students from multiple engineering disciplines to complete a final design project that focuses on your area of interest. This capstone course allows students to complete a project from beginning to end, in their chosen field and under the guidance of a faculty advisor. The comprehensive design course prepares our students to envision and develop new and effective solutions to issues in our world.
Examples of Biological Engineering (Specialization in Biomedical Applications) capstone design projects are:
- Instrumented shoe insert for gait analysis
- Sports neck brace to prevent cervical compression
- Low cost control for prosthetic knee joint
- System to assess grip forces, configuration and frequency of use for children in a diagnostic/rehabilitation situation
