Capstone Design is a series of courses offered to undergraduate students from all disciplines at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Students work in teams to design, build, and test prototypes with real world applications. At the end of each semester students showcase their efforts at the Capstone Design Expo.

The Capstone Design courses provide students the opportunity to work with real-world, open-ended, interdisciplinary challenges proposed by industrial and research project sponsors. The students learn and apply the engineering design process: defining functional requirements, conceptualization, analysis, identifying risks and countermeasures, selection and physical prototyping.

During the semester teams participate in the Georgia Tech InVenture Prize and at the end of the semester, student teams participate in the Georgia Tech Capstone Design Expo.
