Keys aspects of Capstone Project
1) The Capstone Project is a two-semester process in which students pursue independent research on a question or problem of their choice, engage with companies in relevant disciplines, and - with the guidance of a faculty mentor - produce a substantial paper that reflects a deep understanding of the topic.
2) The Capstone Project has been implemented after rigorous feedback from industry, faculty and our alumni.
3) This project runs simultaneous to the curriculum and creates an environment that engages, motivates, and inspires a student to learn more as students can create something vibrant, engaging, and meaningful because they have chosen their area of interest, put their personal touch on it and as a result it bridges the gap between the academic material and what they have created.
