Background
The goal of this project was to investigate what is needed to establish a marketplace for undergraduate capstone projects with an emphasis on multidisciplinary projects involving development of systems engineering competencies. We hope to increase the number of systems engineering capstone projects conducted at universities each year by facilitating the processes of proposing, matching and engaging student teams with potential sponsors. A previous pilot project had demonstrated that a marketplace system was feasible for accomplishing these goals.
The project consisted of three phases:
1. Initiating and supporting a second year of capstone projects
2. Marketing the Capstone Marketplace to attract additional sponsors and participating schools
3. Development of support materials for sponsors and schools that use the marketplace
Activities of these phases overlapped, but initiation and support of the second year and marketing for the third year were mostly separate.
