To wrap up your undergraduate experience at CU Boulder, you will participate in a year-long senior capstone project that gives you a chance to show off what you’ve learned and make important professional connections.

Senior capstone is required for all BS students, and optional for students in the BA program. Students in the BS program must earn a grade of C- or better in both semesters of the capstone in order to meet degree requirements.

Depending on your personal interests, we have three project types to choose from:

  • Software Design Project: Work with a team to complete a real-world software engineering project from an industry, research or faculty sponsor.
  • Entrepreneurial Capstone: Lay the groundwork for your own technical business and prepare to pitch it to potential investors.
  • Senior Thesis: Complete an original research, expository, critical or creative work, under the supervision of a faculty advisor.
