The 17th biannual Innovation Showcase took place virtually on Friday, April 23, 2021. It is an event that offers a glimpse into the transformative engineering taking place within capstone courses.

Starting last spring, the event moved from an in-person event to a virtual exhibit of student-produced and often times industry-sponsored projects. If you attended last semester, then you’re already familiar with the format.

The event features a large-scale exhibit of student-produced, industry-sponsored projects, demonstrating how ASU students solve real-world problems using skills obtained during their undergraduate experience. Collaborating with industry partners both in the greater metropolitan area and across the globe, students have the opportunity to engineer creative solutions to meet tangible industry and societal needs. With the guidance of industry and faculty mentors, the capstone environment enables a think tank for students to conceptualize, develop, produce and refine new methodologies, inventions and ideas.

Innovation Showcase provides an arena in which students can tackle global issues by collaborating, cultivating imagination and infusing entrepreneurship to push the envelope, experience new possibilities and change perceptions. The program fosters the process of invention, creation and revolution, creating generations of innovators and cutting-edge innovations.

From brand new ventures to existing issues and everything in between, capstones offer solutions at the intersections of collaboration, creativity and enthusiasm.

Thank you for supporting our students!
