You never know where a Capstone Design project will take you. 2014 ISyE grad Sangeeta Gadepalli explains how hers helped her land a contract with the UN World Food Programme in Rome.

The Capstone Design Expo is a right of passage for most engineering graduates, and while some projects turn into viable prototypes or business plans many students expect to finish their involvement with their projects when they leave Georgia Tech. That wasn't quite the case for industrial and systems engineering major Sangeeta Gadepalli and her team, who made such an impression on their project sponsor that they heard back from them almost two years later.
