The Multidisciplinary Urban Capstone Project (MUCP) is a unique, full academic year capstone design course offered by the University of Toronto. All projects are sourced from cities, community groups and non-governmental organizations for whom the project addresses a real urban need, and requires a multidisciplinary approach to solve.
The MUCP is designed for exceptional fourth-year students who are looking for a unique, challenging capstone design experience. Students in the MUCP:
Apply knowledge, skills and processes from several disciplines to conduct analysis;
Demonstrate judgement as they integrate economic, environmental, social, and other pertinent interdisciplinary factors;
Incorporate teamwork, project management, and direct stakeholder and Client interaction; and
Prove the feasibility of their design concepts through simulation and prototyping.
This is an informational session for current 3rd year students who are interested in participating in a capstone/independent research course for the 20/21 academic year.
