The Multidisciplinary Urban Capstone Project (MUCP) / International Multidisciplinary Urban Capstone Project (IMUCP) is a full-year academic course open to undergraduate students in their final year from all U of T faculties, departments and campuses.
Students are placed in multidisciplinary teams and matched with a community partner that has identified an existing urban challenge that they would like the students to consult on. Over the course of the academic year, teams research, propose, and ultimately prototype an intervention to address this challenge.
This year, MUCP students will work with one of sixteen community partners. We are also launching IMUCP and expanding to include two projects in India, whereby students in Toronto will work with student team members in India on an Indian urban challenge.
