Students in the Information Technology Capstone course design and implement IT projects that address real-world issues including cost, safety, efficiency, and suitability for external clients by combining their technical, problem solving, and project management skills, on projects for partner organizations. Since 2012, over 300 students have completed 84 projects with more than 50 organizations.
