The purpose of the capstone project is to demonstrate a solid foundation at the graduate level of the field of computer science both in research and in the application. The project allows the student to perform targeted research to develop an applied solution to a real-world situation or cutting-edge problem. The capstone also provides an assessment of the student’s ability to research, write, and communicate in the area of computer science as will be required in the computing and technology industry. The capstone focuses on a selected advanced computer science topic, then systematically engages students in that topic and its application across various science, technology, engineering, and management disciplines and industries. The capstone deliverable includes a detailed analysis of the topic and its current and future applications across the STEM areas.
