Cameron Capstone Team Fall 2016

Capstone Senior Design Course

A mutually beneficial partnership

The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University is looking for small businesses and companies interested in providing valuable hands-on experience to our graduating seniors, while reaping the benefits of our faculty's experience and expertise.

Industrial and systems engineering is a broad discipline with applications in nearly every aspect of the corporate/industrial world. As industrial engineers, we deal with systems and their design, implementation, improvement and integration. Those may be systems of people, material, information or energy. Past capstone projects have addressed issues of forecasting, scheduling, travel/transportation/logistics, facility layout, inventory control, quality assurance, six sigma and lean manufacturing, and production.

Here's how it works

  • Team PresentationsGroups of 4 - 5 students are paired with a corporate partner by course instructors.
  • Together, the company and the students identify problems, or areas of concern, within the business.
  • The students propose methods for verifying, analyzing and solving those problems.
  • A final report containing the students' observations, analysis, and recommendations is provided to the company. (Note: you are not required to implement any of the students' recommendations, though we are quite confident you will want to.)

Throughout this 15-week course, students are supervised by the course instructors and a faculty mentor from the department and provide updates to the project sponsor.

Your company can benefit

We are dedicated to preparing our students for careers as industrial engineers and are proud to have this opportunity to partner with highly qualified, respected and dedicated industry professionals.For the recommended donation to the department, your company can benefit from this expertise.
