Six senior design teams whose projects demonstrate outstanding innovation and entrepreneurship have been selected to receive 2020-21 Mark A. Sternheimer Capstone Design Awards.
These prestigious awards were established in 2012 by Mark A. Sternheimer, a benefactor and a board member of the VCU College of Engineering Foundation. The award recognizes Capstone Design projects that have strong commercialization potential. It is a longstanding component of the college's entrepreneurial culture.
Capstone Design is a two-semester course that represents the culmination of an engineering student’s undergraduate education. It concludes with the Capstone Design Expo. Sternheimer Award winners will showcase their projects to local engineering industry professionals before the Expo.
