Design projects with out-‐of town companies The capstone design class in the industrial engineering at Cal Poly, SLO includes projects with companies. The projects are large ambiguous facilities design problems that allow students to incorporate many aspects of the IE curriculum. For the past 15 years students have been participating in these projects with local companies. Over the past several years companies from out of town (200 miles to the north in Mountain View or 200 miles to the south in Oxnard). These out of town companies have presented certain logistical issues, but they have proved to be quite beneficial to the students, the program and the companies. This paper will discuss lessons learned and illustrate though student assessment the benefits of these activities.
