Advanced Network Design and Performance Computing (Capstone Project)

Course Description

As a requirement for gaining the undergraduate degree, all students must complete a senior project called Research Capstone or complete a capstone project, which is encapsulated in the CN-51426. Senior Project of CN-51426: a report (and perhaps demonstration) describing a development, survey, or small research project in Communication and Networking or an application to Computer Science/Technology.

The aims of this course are:

  • To integrate material from several courses.
  • To introduce the professional literature.
  • To gain experience in writing a technical document.
  • To show evidence of independent work.

Intended Learning Outcomes

Upon the successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

Capstone projects are usually more “experiential” projects where students take what they have learned throughout the course of their undergraduate program and apply it to examine a specific idea. This is intended for students to perform an independent project, either a research-based project or an implementation-based project. Students are expected to be able to look at real world examples and situations, exchange their points of view based on experiences and discuss potential solutions to problems. Ultimately, this will prepare the student for a technical leadership role in their area of study as they complete their degree.
