Project Description

The capstone project is a culmination of everything taught throughout the course. The students must define a problem, carry out research and testing, and then present the solution in the form of a white paper and presentation.

The class will be split into small groups of 4 to 5 and will petition a mentor (O-6 or Civilian equivalent) and propose a project that will require research of a topic related to the course. Each group is responsible for finding a mentor that is a subject matter expert in their topic. To maintain academic integrity, it is recommended that your mentor have a PhD in the area of your topic. Groups will base their project on the advancement of an original point of view as a result of research. All references and lessons from the course may be used in the course of your research.

The project will be relevant and recent. The project should do one of three things: Propose a solution to some type of problem; provide an answer to some type of question; or provide some measure of certainty to something that is uncertain.

In the course of your research, you may discover that your original point of view is inaccurate, and that the outcome or solution to your thesis may wind up 180 degrees out from where you had predicted it would be when you began. Be careful to let the research that you do as a group bring you to the conclusions that you make in your thesis, as opposed to building your thesis conclusions around presupposed notions that are not researched adequately.

The final white paper and presentation should include interdisciplinary aspects of the topic (i.e. technical design, regulatory issues, open standards issues, economic impacts, as well as military specific aspects should be addressed.) Groups are highly encouraged to incorporate modeling and simulations to test their thesis. Students will present and defend their CAPSTONE projects before a board of instructors, mentors, and senior members of the regiment at the end of the course.
