About

HCDE Capstone

Every year, the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering offers capstone classes to both undergraduate and graduate level students as a culminating experience that synthesizes materials learned across all courses within their degree program.

HCDE capstones provide the opportunity for UW students and industry partners to work together to address real-world issues in human-centered design and engineering. Capstone projects are student-run, large-scale projects that encompass two quarters of student work.

HCDE students describe their experience researching, designing, and prototyping an assistive technology system as part of the HCDE undergraduate capstone course.
