Capstone Course (All Tracks)
The MS IT and Management Capstone course combines adaptive analytical skills, traditional and emerging technologies, and business acumen to prepare students for the step from classroom to career. All MSITM students are required to participate in the IT Capstone course and are able to indicate or suggest areas of interest.
MSITM Capstone will involve building a system utilizing technologies learned in the MSITM curriculum. Faculty will work with companies during the summer and fall semester to identify relevant projects for teams of 4-5 students. Student teams will begin planning the capstone project in late fall, and the spring semester will be spent building and implementing the proposed system.
By working with real companies, students gain practical experience developing innovative technological solutions. The Capstone course demonstrates the skills students have acquired throughout the program in a real-world setting.
