Capstone Projects

Each spring, the Department of Systems Engineering utilizes West Point's project day to host a Cadet Capstone conference.
 
General Donald R. Keith Memorial Capstone Conference:
The conference features work from undergraduate students in attendance at West Point and a number of other universities. Students present their work to an audience made up of fellow students, judges, clients and professors. Each presentation track is assigned judges who vote for the best project within each track. Winners receive their award at the Capstone Banquet later that evening. Registration opens in February.
