Three hands-on projects from this year’s Multidisciplinary Capstone Projects course [VIDEOS]

This story is Part 3 of an eight-part series, Engineering Experiential Learning, running throughout spring and summer 2015.

On March 30, fourth-year students from departments across U of T Engineering displayed their innovative solutions to industry challenges in the second-ever Multidisciplinary Capstone Design Projects (MCP) course.

The showcase was the grand finale for 20 multidisciplinary student teams who spent eight months collaborating with clients from Bombardier, Magna, Defence Research & Development Canada, Toronto Rehab and other organizations on iterative, hands-on projects.

Experience three of this year’s projects:

Students engineer new database workflows (Hamilton Professional Firefighters Association)

Students Design New Helmet that Avoids Neck Strain (Defence Research & Development Canada) 

Inventing a New Portable Ramp for Mobility Scooters (Toronto Rehab)

The MCP is a unique experiential learning opportunity organized by Professor Kamran Behdinan (MIE), director of the Faculty’s Institute for Multidisciplinary Design & Innovation. Now finished its second year, the program brings together engineering students from different departments to solve challenges proposed by prominent industry partners.
