Multidisciplinary Capstone Projects

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. The MCP course provides an experience in multidisciplinary engineering practice based around a significant design project. Student teams work through a creative, iterative, decision making, 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.

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. This course is designed for exceptional fourth-year engineering students who are looking for a unique, challenging capstone design experience.


Apply knowledge, skills and processes from several disciplines 


Demonstrate engineering judgment as they integrate interdisciplinary factors


Incorporate teamwork, project management, and direct stakeholder and Client interaction


Prove the feasibility of their design concepts through simulation and prototyping
