“Capstone courses give students experience solving a substantial problem using concepts that span several topic areas in Computer Science and/or Computer Engineering. Students must work together in teams to define the problem, develop a solution plan, produce and demonstrate an artifact that solves the problem, and present their work using written and oral reports. Class time focuses primarily on the project design and implementation, but may include lectures on the practical application of advanced topics. Cross-disciplinary projects that require interaction with other departments are encouraged.
A capstone course is not simply an advanced course in a particular sub area, nor is it simply an unstructured project course.”
