ABOUT

Founded by the Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS) Scientific Program Director, Pavlos Protopapas, the Capstone Research course is a group-based research experience where students work directly with a partner from industry, government, academia, or an NGO to solve a real-world data science problem. Students will create a solution in the form of a software package, which will require varying levels of research.  Upon completion of this challenging project, students will be better equipped to conduct research and enter the professional world. Every class session includes a guest lecture concerning various essential skills for one's career -- from public speaking, reading and writing research papers, how to work remotely on a team, everything about start-ups, etc.
