Multidisciplinary Capstone Design Course (MCP)

The Multidisciplinary Capstone Design course is a unique, full academic year capstone design course offered by University of Toronto’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering. All projects are sourced from an industry Client for whom the project represents a real business need. They are also explicitly multidisciplinary in nature. Successfully completing the project requires that students integrate skills and knowledge from across multiple engineering disciplines. U of T Engineering’s Multidisciplinary Capstone Design course provides an experience in multidisciplinary engineering practice based around a significant design project. Student teams work through a creative, iterative, and open-ended design process to meet specified Client needs. Team members from different engineering disciplines collaborate to design solutions that address the complexity of contemporary engineering design challenges.This course is designed for exceptional fourth-year engineering students who are looking for a unique, challenging capstone design experience.

Students in the Multidisciplinary Capstone Design course:

Apply knowledge, skills and processes from several disciplines to conduct engineering analysis and practice engineering design;
Demonstrate engineering judgment as they integrate economic, health, safety, environmental, social, and other pertinent interdisciplinary factors
Incorporate teamwork, project management, and direct stakeholder and Client interaction; and
Prove the feasibility of their design concepts through simulation and prototyping.
