Capstone Award

Susquehanna Section Annual Capstone Award

 In 2021 the IEEE Susquehanna Section established the annual Capstone award to recognize the best undergraduate Capstone project in the Section’s geographic area. Local universities and colleges, who require their undergraduate students to participate in Capstone project activities as a requirement to receive a degree, will submit in their judgement the best Capstone project which represents their school to the IEEE Susquehanna Section. The Section will judge each project and will present the Section Capstone award to the winning contributors. A $500 award will be given the best project and shared with all project contributors and each contributor will receive an IEEE certificate of recognition.
