A key element of the Department of Mechanical Engineering Senior Design Program at the University of Connecticut is the industrial sponsorship of virtually all Capstone projects. This paper is a collaborative effort between the Program Manager and two of the current 2016–2017 student teams. The students discuss their initial reasons for selecting their projects and their experiences in working with a peer group in the planning and execution of a project. Learnings from their interaction with the industrial sponsor, achievement of the ABET objectives and the value that the project experience has provided in obtaining post-graduation employment. Opportunities and actions, based on this feedback, for continued development of the program to improve effectiveness are also identified.
