Project opportunity - Do you have any tree fruit engineering challenges?

Monday, August 30, 2021

If you have an idea for a project, Dalhousie University engineering students could assist tree fruit growers with engineering challenges. Students in their final year of the engineering program have to take a Capstone Course where they are given an industry based engineering challenge to solve a real world problem.

Typical projects are existing problems or initiatives which companies do not have time or resources to tackle alone. Ideally, these are problems that are important to solve, but not critical to the core business operations of the industry partner or time constrained to be solved sooner than in the next 12 months.

To become involved, submit a project idea and application form as a project sponsor. The sponsor will provide at least one contact person who will communicate regularly with the student team (1-2 hrs per week). Project costs are different for each discipline (may include software, licenses, materials, machinery & lab testing) but there is no charge for students' or faculty time, nor for the use of their facilities for project work.
