MSU looking for capstone project sponsors

Posted: Updated:

Montana State University is reaching out to the public to garner funding for the College of Engineering’s senior capstone projects.

This isn’t the first time the University has requested sponsors for capstone projects – and it likely won’t be the last.

According to an email from the University, due to MSU's swelling enrollment, there is not only more opportunity for sponsorships – but more need.

Capstone projects give graduating seniors the chance to apply what they’ve learned to a real-world problem, explains capstone coordinator Robb Larson.

Sponsorships are more than just a donation; students will work together with their a faculty adviser and a backer on a project that can benefit the sponsor.

In the end, the sponsor will receive a functional prototype from the student.

Sponsors pay for the supplies, but the student’s design work is free.

Small businesses and university researchers, even national labs – anyone with “great ideas but small budgets” – are encouraged to reach out.
