Capstone Project Details

What is The Capstone Project?

Experiential learning allows students to take their skills out of the classroom and into the market. Teams of 3-5 students work with faculty mentors and industry practitioners for 300-500 hours on research projects throughout the semester


What We Offer

  • Data-driven insights and strategies
  • Student talent pipeline for recruitment
  • Competitive advantage through latest advances in technology & entrepreneurship
  • Track record of productive collaborations with corporate affiliates in different industry sectors
  • Experienced and diverse student groups with the mentorship of practitioners

There is no cost to project sponsors. All we ask is that you provide a research question that can sustain the length of the program and time committed to meeting with student teams.


Past Capstone Projects

Health and Wellness

Sponsor: Motispark

Technology allows mental health advocates to reach different target audiences. The team has partnered with a start-up to deploy a pilot program among university students promoting health and wellness. Through experiments across control groups and focus groups, the team has identified drivers of student engagement and satisfaction particularly through visual media.  

Transportation Monitoring 

Sponsor: New York City Department of Transportation

Each year companies and agencies spend millions of dollars on traffic data collection. This traffic data is essential to conducting multimodal transportation planning and engineering studies to help provide for the safe, efficient, and environmentally responsible movement of people and goods in big cities. The project leverages object detection and object tracking to automatically process traffic data yielding information about the movement of vehicles and pedestrians.
