Capstone Projects

Capstone projects, studio projects and student design projects represent a partnership between Texas A&M University-Commerce and a government or industry sponsor.

These are usually a part of senior-level undergraduate courses or graduate courses that give students the opportunity to apply what they have been learning in the classroom to real-world problems. These types of activities are mutually beneficial to the sponsor and the University. The students and faculty get a window on the issues facing organizations and companies, and the sponsor gets some really bright minds to look at an idea, issue or pain point from a totally different perspective. It's also an opportunity for a sponsor to recruit the university's best talent.

These projects can be funded or unfunded, but either way, it is important to have an agreement in place signed by individuals with signature authority, as this is an official university activity and the agreement will not only protect everyone involved but also make sure expectations are correctly set.

We appreciate your partnership and look forward to making this a friction-free experience for you, and a positive opportunity for you, our students and our faculty.

If you have any questions about these projects or how to move forward with a partnership with Texas A&M-Commerce, please contact Cece Gassner at cece.gassner@tamuc.edu.
