Capstone courses where students collaboratively apply their knowledge to solve realistic project challenges are a common component in many Civil Engineering programs. The participation of industry partners in these capstone courses is also common. However, the configuration of these courses and the role the industry plays in them vary across the engineering programs and there is not a clear best practice. This paper describes the experience of a company participating in capstone courses and summarizes the lessons learned.
