Students in the Human Centered Design & Engineering master's program spend their final two quarters researching, designing, and engineering a solution to an identified problem as part of their Capstone project. Students select their own project, and many are sponsored by members of HCDE's
Corporate Affiliates Program.
View posters and videos from the 2017 Master's Capstone course below, and join HCDE students, faculty, alumni, and friends for the
HCDE Open House on June 1, 2017 to talk to the students about their work and test interactive demos.
