PR1410 - Capstone Project I (Seminar)

The capstone project enables the learner completing an Advanced Diploma in the Environmental Engineering Technology program to demonstrate the application of skills and knowledge developed throughout the program. Learners taking this course will work with minimal supervision on a project, under the guidance of a faculty member. The learner can work independently or in teams of two to carry out an in-depth study of a problem, design or technical application, and fully document and present their findings. At the end of this course, the learner will have completed a proposal of their capstone project that will be completed in the following academic semester of their program.
Learners can commence planning for the course prior to the beginning of Semester 2. Since the project and report are to be prepared through independent study, the assigned hours represent only part of the time that learners are expected to allocate to the course. Regular meetings with a faculty supervisor will be scheduled within the assigned hours and it is mandatory that learners attend these meetings.
This course will be delivered to the learners by a technical instructor in collaboration with a communications instructor.

Prerequisite(s): All courses in previous academic semesters and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0
