Capstone Project Course

The required, semester-long capstone course will allow students to engage with industry partners and develop a solution to real-world, data-driven issues.

The MS-DAS program will establish partnerships from a variety of relevant industry areas. Teams of students will collaborate with industry partners and the faculty course lead and apply techniques learned in the program to complex, scientific problems. Regular meetings with industry partners will allow students to receive feedback and enhance communications and presentation skills. Further, students will have the opportunity to network with potential employers and expand their professional network through the capstone project.
