This is a capstone design class, which is unlike classes you have previously taken. While other classes focus on teaching specific content associated with engineering, the capstone is your chance to put is all together. ABET defines capstone as:
“A culminating course that allows students who are nearing graduation to “put together” the knowledge and skills they have acquired in their program and apply it to a major project or assignment.”
The focus of the course is, therefore, on the major project you will execute. Course handouts, syllabus, and lecture materials are available through NMSU’s Canvas website. Other links to literature and software that may be of use are presented below.
