Volunteer with the AME Capstone Program

The AME Capstone Program is an essential component to an AME undergraduate education. This semester-long project takes students out of the classroom and places them in a student team tasked with designing a product for a real client. Students must take knowledge acquired during the previous three-and-a-half years and apply it in a real-world setting while improving crucial skills for the workforce such as teamwork, data interpretation, communication, problem solving, ethical decision making, timely project completion all within budget. There are multiple options for alumni involvement in the AME Capstone Program.

To volunteer, contact Dr. Christopher Dalton.

- Guest Judges judge the capstone projects during the Capstone Fair.

- Technical Liaisons serve as mentors and technical advisors throughout semester-long project, working with one team 2-4 hours per week.

- Project Sponsors are companies and individuals who develop an open-ended project for a Capstone Team to complete to the sponsor’s satisfaction. The sponsor provides the funds and materials for the project.
