Capstone projects

Learning outcomes

At the course students adapt their theoretical knowledge to implement and tune a working solution to a real-life challenge.

After the course students

  • can plan and manage team work extending over several months and connect their own work with team deliverables
  • recognize the roles and responsibilities of members in a project team and potential challenges in team work
  • know how to communicate topics of one's own discipline to stakeholders with diverse educational backgrounds.
  • know from firsthand experience how a complex and possibly ill-defined problem is approached and solved through dividing work into phases with their own sub goals, milestones and deliverables
  • can analyze and communicate the progress and performance of the project to external stakeholders


Project topics are unique for each instance of the course. Topics are driven by real needs of companies, communities and research groups. For each chosen topic, a project team of typically 5-8 members with different study backgrounds will be formed.
