The Capstone in Information Technology and Informatics is designed to synthesize what students have learned in the ITI program through a directed project that is identified by the Coordinator and the ITI Director. Throughout the semester, students work together in teams to complete the selected project. In addition to the project, students may also complete written assignments that document the progress of the team, produce a final paper, and participate in a final presentation experience to showcase their work (e.g. in-class, Undergraduate Research Day, etc.).
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Design a real world product or service and complete the project to develop that produce or service with other individuals in a team setting.
- Demonstrate the ability to successfully prioritize, organization, and carry out the project including: developing a plan for completion; organizing the team to maximize chances for success; showcasing the product or service in several settings including both Undergraduate Research Day and a Final Presentation for a wide audience.
- Show proficiency in incorporating what they have learned throughout the ITI major.
- Integrate into the project the knowledge and skills gained in the ITI major.
- Show proficiency in newly learned skills as required to complete the project.
