Remote Projects Day

April 30, 2020

21st Anniversary

On 30 APR 2020, West Point Academic Departments will conduct a Remote Projects Day to virtually showcase their cadets’ senior theses, capstone design projects, and multi-year interdisciplinary research efforts. Remote Projects Day events highlight the combined intellectual capital of cadets, faculty, and external collaborators from across the Army, DoD, and beyond.

To participate in the cadet briefings, presentations, and discussions, use the EventMobi App Projects Day online brochure to identify the events you would like to attend. The app organizes the presentations by Academic Department and time while describing what the presentation entails and who is giving the presentation. We hope you are able to join us in celebrating the cadet's great academic accomplishments!

2020 Projects Day

Cadets showcase the projects they've worked on during the 2019 - 2020 academic year.

Projects Day highlights academic excellence across USMA showcasing leaders of character who think critically, internalize their professional identity and will employ their education to help build the Army and the nation’s future.

Firsties present more than 230 capstone projects and theses during West Point's annual Projects Day. Projects included everything from inventions to research papers to scientific experiments.

Cadets have invented a concrete canoe, unmanned aerial vehicles, robots, and a bionic foot, to name a few. They have written theses about micro brewing, Iranian nuclear politics and control of the CIA under Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy.

Cadets are able to develop a research project and pursue a research topic through a thesis or capstone project or expand on practical experience gained on an Academic Individual Advanced Development (AIAD) that may be sponsored by external organizations.

"A lot of these cadets are briefing the clients who sponsored these projects and who will possibly take those projects back into their own organization and use them for the Army or DOD or for industry." -- COL Rob Kewley

"The greatest benefit our cadets get is a team-based design experience with an open-ended problem. There is no one answer, so it's a culminating event that challenges them." -- COL Joseph Hanus

"You have all these agencies and corporations give you a project and the project ends up being a real-world problem, (the cadets) need to mature intellectually and with regard to their own self-confidence through this process." -- Dr. Kenneth McDonald
