Professors at an event

Two capstone seminars—one each semester of the senior year—provide opportunities for majors to complete a significant research project related to their area of concentration and to review and prepare for the comprehensive written and oral examinations that all IS majors take at the end of their senior year.

The following list includes current and historic, individual student research projects, public presentations from conferences, symposia and exhibitions*, and peer-reviewed publications. For abstracts on each project see Students as Scholars.

*“Supported by:” on Student Conference Presentation records indicates the entity or funding mechanism that supported the student’s participation in the conference, i.e. travel expenses, poster costs, etc.  For on-campus conferences, the supporting entity is usually the academic department sponsoring the event.

**“Supported by:” on Student Research Project records indicates the entity or funding mechanism that supported the student’s research costs, i.e. supplies, materials, equipment, stipends, local or international research travel, etc.
