Faculty Advisor

All projects in Capstone Design are accomplished by student teams.  Each project team is assigned a Faculty Advisor for the duration of the project.  Groups meet weekly to bi‑weekly (every other week) with their Faculty Advisors, who are an important resource for the students.  Advisors have a specific, defined role in the project.  Their responsibilities include:

  • Advisor on technical issues
  • Approval for course milestones
  • Supervision of schedule
  • Council on team management issues
  • Significant input into course grades

However, it should be noted that Faculty Advisors are not responsible for the overall success of the project.
