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 put into practice what you’ve learned and make important professional connections.

Senior capstone is required for all BS students. 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.
