The Senior Capstone experience at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point allows cadets to draw upon and apply knowledge in their chosen majors as well as knowledge gained throughout the course of their studies to design solutions to real-world problems. This year, select First Class, or senior year, cadets from the Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering (CME) and the Department of Systems Engineering (DSE), are participating in a new Senior Capstone project sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Installations, Energy and Environment).
This innovative project is the result of a collaboration between the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Energy and Sustainability and USMA professors Lt. Col. Brad McCoy and Dr. F. Todd Davidson, who work within the Center for Innovation and Engineering housed within CME, and Maj. Steve McCarthy from the DSE. Army readiness begins on our installations where secure access to energy and water is vital to supporting critical missions. Read more.
