This work details a survey of engineering capstone design courses focused on faculty teaching load and capstone funding levels. The survey was distributed to the attendees of the inaugural National Capstone Design Course Conference in June 2007. The survey yielded responses from 59 participants, representing 45 institutions. The results of the survey provide valuable insight into number and duration of design projects, team size, capstone teaching credit, faculty involvement, direct project costs, and external funding levels.
