Capstone Projects

The Rock Valley College Engineering and Technology degree "Capstone Course" is looking for spring 2013 student team projects.

  • Do you have an idea for a new mechanical or electromechanical device, product, or system but no time or resources to work on it?

  • Is your company looking for an innovative solution to a long-standing mechanical, electromechanical,or manufacturing problem?

  • Would you like to improve the efficiency or ergonomics of some of the machinery on your manufacturing floor?

A Capstone Project sponsorship can assist you on these tasks and more.

Sponsorship Benefits

  • Small investment yields "outside-of-the-box" solutions to your organization's business needs and ideas.

  • "No-obligation" opportunity to work with and train potential company hires.

  • Raises your organization's visibility at RVC (and beyond) and leads to stronger working relationships with RVC MET/EET faculty.

  • Helps shape and influence our next generation of mechanical, industrial, and manufacturing engineers—here in the Greater Rockford Area.
