Class of 2017

You are invited to be our guest at this year’s senior capstone presentations for the ICC Class of 2017.  The capstone project is a ten-week “deep dive” for graduating seniors to synthesize and present their diverse array of accumulated knowledge and skills from throughout their college experience into a design project of their own creation.deth
Over three days you will be able to sample work ranging from research projects into reducing food waste on college campuses, to a re-imagination of an entry-level Porsche “hot hatch,” to a toolkit designed for vintage British motorcycles, to a rework of one of central Ohio’s finest restaurants!
Professionals, please come and share your feedback by RSVPing with the “professional” registration option.  We would love your valuable input for as many presentations as you can view!
