Capstone Proposal Information
All School of ATEC students must complete Capstone during their graduating semester. Enrollment is restricted to students going into their last long (Fall/Spring) semester at UTD.
Capstone is an upper-level major requirement for all School of ATEC majors and is intended as a culminating course for the major. Students create a project of their own choosing with faculty supervision. To apply, students must submit their Capstone Proposal by the posted deadline in the semester prior to their graduating semester. After faculty review, students are assigned to either ATCM 4397 (Senior Seminar) or ATCM 4398 (Capstone Project).
Faculty will review proposals in the weeks following the deadline and assign students to ATCM 4397 or 4398. Late, incorrect, and/or incomplete applications risk reduced supervisor options and may delay graduation.
If you have additional information to note, include it in the ‘Additional Information’ section at the end of the proposal.
If you have questions about or difficulties submitting your Capstone Proposal, contact Capstone Coordinator, Pamela Kitchens.
Capstone Proposal Questions
Use this list of questions to help you prepare your proposal ahead of your due date. This is meant to be a planning tool for preparing your official Capstone Proposal submission. You will need to submit your official Capstone Proposal using the survey link you receive via email.
These questions will likely be the same ones on your official Capstone Proposal, but it is possible for changes to be made between each submission period. Any changes to the questions will be made (and updated here) in Week 4 of each semester.
