Capstone Projects

Capstone projects give university students the opportunity to apply their learning to a real work item or problem that needs to be developed or solved.

Test and Develop Your Skills

Capstone Project

The capstone project is an opportunity, and a challenge, for students to apply their critical thinking and university learning in a real-world setting.

CareerDC coordinates capstone projects for groups of students in their final year of study or students who have a capstone unit at any stage of their degrees.

Each host company will assign a supervisor for the team of capstone project students who will collaborate with the capstone project academic supervisor.
