"Capstone is a great way for industry to
Screen graduates that are actually excellent engineers with great proximity (including people skills, etc. that are unseen in typical interviews)
Train potential employees before they are hired. This is a very effective yet economical way to train new hires. They will be familiarized with the company, the corporate culture, and domain specific knowledge that will enable them to be effective in the future.
Contribute to the education of the engineers and provide valuable inputs to the engineering departments as to how to educate students with better teaching-learning methods and the needs in industry."
