Capstone Project

The Capstone Project is a two-semester process in which students pursue independent research on a question or problem of their choice, engage with companies in relevant disciplines, and - with the guidance of a faculty mentor - produce a substantial paper that reflects a deep understanding of the topic.

Capstone Project generally progresses in one of the 3 avenues:

  1. A continuation of problem statement adopted during summer program, if mutually agreed with the organisation or as a problem of technical interest as by-project with a fresh start which may lead to substantial work towards the solution of the problem statement

  2. A mutually agreed to project with a start-up or an organisation with a clear objective and a possible delivery timeline. The startup environment fostered by the SIDBI IIT Kanpur often provides innumerable opportunities for fostering professional ideation and implementation of solutions which can be visibly observed in the accelerated start-ups.

  3. Students are strongly encouraged to choose a topic in which they have some competence based on their academic work, professional experience, or exploration of future career options


The Capstone Project has been implemented after rigorous feedback from industry, faculty and our alumni. The broad objectives of the Capstone project are:

  1. To inculcate the understanding of sustainability and innovation to bring a student in tune with the changing times and future requirements

  2. Enable a student to not only implement function- specific techniques and knowledge, but also to learn the integrative skills where knowledge across specific streams can be applied to a real-life problem

  3. Enable companies to benefit from the insights and solutions provided by the students while working on Capstone project


This project runs simultaneous to the curriculum and creates an environment that engages, motivates, and inspires a student to learn more. As students can create something vibrant, engaging, and meaningful because they have chosen their area of interest, put their personal touch to it and as a result it bridges the gap between the academic material and what they have created. This enables students to retain the information better because they have designed something from a real-world experience.
