Capstone Project Tips and Steps
1. After taking a handful of classes, students should begin seriously thinking about ideas for their Capstone Project, the final project for all degree programs. The Capstone is designed to be a beneficial project to the students' (or other) organization. 2. To direct your thinking, ask yourself the following questions:
What areas or issues am I most passionate about?
What improvement needs to be made where I work?
What knowledge have I gained from the courses I've taken at Aspen that may assist me in producing my project? How can I apply this newly acquired knowledge and skills to the real world? Will I be able to see my project through to implementation or should I merely design a plan that can be implemented later? Who will benefit by my project? My company? Some other organization? What resources are available to me in producing my project?
Will someone assist me?
Who will evaluate my project? A stakeholder? My capstone advisor? Can I produce the project within the desired timeframe?
What does the existing literature say about my topic?
Tip: In your proposal writing, be sure to use the word "would" rather than the word "will."
