Previous Capstone Projects

C&D Zodiac, a division of Zodiac Aerospace, manufactures airplane interior sidewall panels. Their current panels have minimal insulating properties so they rely on insulating blankets between the panels and the airframe to provide thermal and acoustic insulation. C&D Zodiac’s current seam...
O.C. Tanner produces metal recognition awards including Olympic medals. The awards are pressed with a die, which causes the metal to harden. Some awards need to be heated and annealed for subsequent pressing operations to be successful. O.C. Tanner currently uses a furnace to heat the parts which...
Sandia National Laboratories uses sophisticated technology and science to solve problems involving national security.  An environmental sensing device prevents detonation of an explosive device until it has experienced its intended delivery mode.  The project focused on developing a new...
Los Alamos National Laboratory sponsored a team of BYU students to solve a problem they encounter in their field. The National Laboratory receives spheres ranging from 14-40” in diameter and weighing up to 2000 pounds. These spheres are packed in crates and often supported in a way that makes the...
L-3 Fuzing and Ordnance Systems sponsored a team of students to design and build an Ignition Safety Device to be used miniature rockets by drawing inspiration from an out-the-front knife. The goal for the design was that it stored energy over a long period of time and released it over a short...
The BYU Department of Anthropology regularly conducts digs in remote locations with no access to grid electrical power. As a leader in technologically-advanced archaeology methods, the Department has specific electrical requirements even while away from reliable sources of power. At the start of...
All engines need oil or some type of lubricant in order to function properly and have a long service life. Oil pumps, which require an oil  inlet are located on engines to keep the internal components lubricated. John Deere, a manufacturer of heavy equipment for agriculture, forestry, and...
Our sponsors Chris Musso and Jonathan Sylvester of Moose motorsports are active off-road enthusiasts.  Our project goal was to develop a family of pneumatic accessories, centered around a high pressure air tank, capable of solving a variety of different problems encountered when off-roading...
Level-One Mohs is a small company with a big dream, to improve treatment of skin cancer. To facilitate this dream, they turned to BYU’s capstone program. Level-One Mohs sponsored Moh-bile Labs to develop a design for a mobile cryostat for use in Moh’s surgery, a procedure used to treat skin cancers...
DisperSol Technologies creates unique pharmaceutical compounds.  These compounds are unable to be pelletized using conventional pharmaceutical pellet making processes.  Poly Pellet Pharmaceuticals designed a process to pelletize these unique compounds.  The process needed to...
