The 2017 Electrical Engineering Entrepreneurial Capstone Fair


The Electrical Engineering Entrepreneurial Capstone (ENGINE) program, which was rolled out in Spring 2016, offers students the mentorship of engineering professionals. Students work on industry-sponsored projects, developing their skills in innovation, systems engineering, project management and project development. Since its introductory year, the ENGINE program has already seen significant growth from interested students and local companies.

Currently, more than 50 percent of the UW EE undergraduate graduating class is enrolled in the program. Students work on cutting-edge projects, including drone radar, transit apps, space communications and clean energy. On May 30, students will present their projects to peers, industry professionals and faculty.
