Join the University of Washington's Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISE) for our 2023 Capstone Expo and Poster Competition. Every June, the Capstone Showcase features the final projects developed by teams of ISE undergraduates, including some interdisciplinary teams, representing the culmination of skills and knowledge gained in the ISE program. 

Project Descriptions

Projects are grouped into teams based in the following themes: 

Transportation, Supply Chain and Logistics, Plant layout and Design, ADA Implementation, Strategy for Airlines, Cost Design, Data Analysis, Process Re-Design, Optimization, Quality Assurance, and Human Factors.

Student teams begin work in Winter quarter and continue through Spring quarter on an industry sponsored problem.  The ISE students utilize a systems engineering approach to solve these real-world problem. At the Capstone Showcase a judging panel of ISE alumni and faculty awards teams with cash prizes.
