Sponsor a Penn State Senior
Capstone Project

Penn State Erie's School of Engineering is currently identifying senior capstone ideas for the upcoming year. The School is seeking industrial partners willing to sponsor a project team. Sponsoring a project team can enable your organization to:
  • Explore the application of new technologies on back burner projects with low-cost and low-risk. 
  • Draw from interdisciplinary faculty expertise.
  • Provide an enriching opportunity for students to use their education in an industrial situation.
