This study assesses the recognition and needs of university students regarding capstone design classes based on their majors. The overall score regarding recognition of capstone design was 3.26 points, which implied that students understood the significance of capstone design classes but had a weak understanding of capstone design. Students in science and engineering also showed higher recognition than those in other fields. The need for capstone design classes was strongest among students in the science and engineering fields, but was relatively weak among students in the humanities and social sciences fields. This study is significant in that it can be used as basic data for designing the direction of capstone design courses and developing teacher-student programs that fit the consumer.
