A Rewarding Real-world Learning Experience
The Capstone Program is a project-based, academic course where sponsors provide industry projects for our students. The Ying Wu College of Computing (YWCC) Capstone Program offers a very cost-effective solution for your business with a high return on your investment by using the help of driven, talented and well-trained CS, IS and IT students from NJIT. Capstone is a required course for all of our undergraduate students and has recently been added as an elective for our graduate students.
Students and sponsors utilize a continuous process improvement strategy, on a biweekly basis, managed by a course instructor and our executive team.
Capstone teams are composed of 2-4 well-trained and talented students as focused, teams of consultants with carefully selected leaders and mentors.
Students receive mentorship, training, and support from our Capstone leadership and executive team as well as access to a variety of other resources in our network.
This program aims at offering a rewarding real-world learning experience for students as well as a cost-effective assistance to our Sponsors. The main goal of the Capstone Project program is twofold. First, to train students to apply IT, MIS, software engineering strategies and practical fundamental knowledge acquired during their tenure at NJIT. Secondly, to provide our Sponsors with talented students who bring fresh insight and know-how to work with our Sponsors to solve sponsor identified problems. Obviously, the Capstone Program is a completely different concept than traditional internships.
