If you are interested in having a student team help you advance your interdisciplinary or medical device or technology project throughout this academic year, then please fill out this form and we will get back to you soon.
What is involved?
Teams from 2 to 4 undergraduate students work on the project from September to April every year. The course concludes at the beginning of April with McGill Design Day, where students present the work on their project to judges from academia and industry alike. Teams can be from the departments of Bioengineering, Electrical, Computer and Software Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering. Mixed teams comprised of students from different departments are also welcome.
Students work on the design during the fall semester and create the prototype in the winter semester. They work under the supervision of the sponsoring client and an academic advisor.
Information specific to companies
The overhead administrative fee for one selected capstone project is $4000 CAD. For two selected projects in one academic year, the total fee is $6000 and it is $7500 for three projects. Companies also cover the costs of all materials and supplies required for the prototype.
