Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing

Capstone Design Program

Welcome to the Capstone Design Program for Mechanical & Mechatronic Engineering at Chico State University.

The Capstone Design Program at Chico State partners senior-level engineering students with industry sponsors to design, build, and test solutions to real-world problems. Engineering faculty members oversee all design projects; bringing to bear their own research in key engineering disciplines. Students gain valuable experience as they apply theory to practice, while industry sponsors benefit from introductions to young talent and the innovative solutions they present.

Such collaboration prepares our students for positions with top companies, advances our faculty’s cutting-edge research, provides innovative solutions to our industry sponsors’ most pressing problems, and makes the world a better place to live as project solutions are implemented for the public good.
