EKEH1170 Capstone project 15 ECTS
Organised by
Food Development

General description

Capstone project is a process type study course during which multidisciplinary group of students aims to solve a real-life problem from industry or other sectors. For students, Capstone project is an opportunity to combine their knowledge of food development and engineering sciences and to apply this special know-how to meet requirements of industry.

Learning outcomes

Students learn skills for working in projects, ideally multidisciplinary projects. During the course students will enhance key process skills such as project management and teamwork with people from different fields and different cultures, and develop competency in gathering, analyzing, and documenting data (laboratory books, work reports, meeting memos, project progress reports, etc.) Students will gain experience in resolving real life problems in industry and other sectors.


A project task will be defined for a group of students to work on as a project team. The team aims to find a solution to a real life problem from industry or as a part of a large scale multidisciplinary project. The students are responsible for finding the solution and are actively involved in the action to implement the solution. The students will also document the project results at different phases. Capstone project should include both literature study and practical laboratory work. The course implementation includes independent work on defined task of each student and regular meetings of the team. The Course Teacher supervises and oversees the progress of the team work.
