Why interviewers want to know applicant's capstone project.

Last month. I had a job interview and they brought the capstone project(thesis) topic. I did answered them in a brief explanation, I just want to ask why it's a relevant topic to come up during job interview?

I looked up in DDG's search result and I'm not convinced by the result they gave. So I'm here to ask those questions from someone who's hiring developers.(With a degree ofc.)

they don't care so much about the project itself, they want to know you can talk about it, explain why you made some of the decisions you made, make sure you didn't just coast and make sure you can communicate ideas/concepts clearly

I have a BS in chemE and have had people ask about my senior design project when interviewing for jobs in robotics.
