PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS NEEDED
Lassonde School of Engineering, York University
2018/2019 Capstone Project
In partnership with the Lassonde School of Engineering at York University, PEO York Chapter is seeking Professional Engineers as volunteers to act as Industry Advisors. The volunteers will work with fourth year undergraduate students, and their faculty instructors, in their multi-disciplinary Capstone Engineering Design project course, which runs from November 2018 to April 2019. This year, students will come from Space, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronics, Geomatics, Energy, Computer and Software engineering programs.
The advising activity would, as a minimum, consist of providing feedback to students in the run up to / at their design gate reviews (2 or 3 reviews over the fall/winter of 2018/2019 – noting that feedback/support can be provided remotely for these reviews), and attendance at the student project fair at the end of the course. Students will have faculty advisers and supervisors, but the school is keen to involve active industry practitioners, to give students real-world feedback, and also to allow practitioners to engage with soon-to-be graduates.
A list of potential projects proposed to the students can be found on the following page. The actual projects may differ, as students can pitch their own projects, and some project may change direction a bit post proposal.
A kick-off event amongst Chapter volunteers, and Lassonde School of Engineering faculty is being planned for early December 2018.
