IRIS Affiliate Stephen Durham, the assistant dean for student success and outreach at the University of Georgia’s College of Engineering, spoke to the efficacy of the UGA College of Engineering Capstone program in a recent article on the College of Engineering’s webpage.

“From the professional and being prepared side of things, this is where our students shine when I talk to employers,” said Durham, in the article. “Our students come very well prepared, and our employers tell us they don’t feel afraid putting a University of Georgia graduate in front of a client because they know they’re ready for that. That’s always good to hear.”
