The culmination of each BS degree program in CEES is a two-semester capstone sequence. The capstone design experience requires students to draw upon various aspects of their undergraduate course work to develop a comprehensive solution to an open-ended problem. CEES has developed two innovative capstone courses; a multi-disciplinary engineering course and an environmental course. The environmental capstone experience involves teams of environmental engineering and environmental science students. The teams address a real-world environmental problem that typically involves extensive fieldwork. The course is co-instructed by environmental engineering and science faculty. The student teams must submit written reports and make oral presentations before an evaluation board comprised of practicing environmental regulators and consultants.
