Hands-on learning opportunities at university are key to student success in the workforce after graduation. Many University of Ontario Institute of Technology academic programs, including Engineering, give undergraduate students a chance to apply what they have learned in the classroom by completing a Capstone project in their final year. Students spend eight months working in teams to devise innovative solutions to real-world problems. The project not only tests the students’ engineering knowledge, but also their discipline, time-management, communication and teamwork skills.

The university’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science recently released a video highlighting the experience of a 2017 Capstone team that designed an electric 8x8 combat vehicle (fully-functional smaller model of a military vehicle).
