Welcome to C769!

Welcome! The IT capstone is a written project demonstrating competency in your field through communicating the planning and implementation of an IT solution to a business problem.

The capstone includes three parts:

::::{card-carousel} 3

:::{card} :margin: 3 :class-body: text-center :class-header: bg-light text-center 🔗 ./task1.html

Choose a topic and get approval. +++ Task 1 details {fas} arrow-right :::

:::{card} :margin: 3 :class-body: text-center :class-header: bg-light text-center 🔗 ./task2.html

The Proposal -a detailed paper outlining an IT solution to a client's problem. +++ Task 2 details {fas} arrow-right :::

:::{card} :margin: 3 :class-body: text-center :class-header: bg-light text-center 🔗 ./task3.html

The Conclusion -a detailed paper describing the implementation of the Proposal. +++ Task 3 details {fas} arrow-right ::: ::::

First, understand the project's requirements. What they are -and what they aren't. Watch the following video:

Task 3, the Report, mostly rewrites the Proposal, task 2. Hence, task 2 represents 80-90% of the capstone work. For a more in-depth understanding of this crucial task, view the section-by-section videos explaining task 2 and the video on writing task 3.

Therefore, do not use these as examples of what’s needed to meet the requirements. For a more down-to-earth example of what’s required, see the above Examples section.

Welcome email #

We’ve tried to provide everything you need here on this website as a more complete and readily available resource than the “welcome email,” i.e., the non-automated introductory email from your assigned course instructor containing the tips and resources needed to get started in the right direction. However, we often get asked for the email, and I suppose this website would be incomplete without it. So here is an example of a “welcome email.”

A Welcome Email

Welcome to C769! See the C769 IT Capstone website (this website) for almost everything you need.

To understand what the capstone requires, watch Choosing a project idea and Capstone Proposal Overview . Your first step is choosing a topic ; we recommend a topic proposing a technical solution to a problem -avoiding those that deliver only information (i.e., reports, policies, plans, training, etc.). Though they often need reframing to fit the capstone requirements, past or present work projects make great capstone topics.

Follow this Project Checklist

There is a plainly stated business need/problem for a specific client. Include details of a specific client’s environment and problem.

The topic proposes a solution specific to the needs of the client. It is not descriptive (how to do something), prescriptive >(the best way to do something), or strictly a research project.

Though this is a wholly written exercise (an actual project is not required), fabricated projects must be indistinguishable from reality, and former work/school projects may need adjusting.

The proposed project is related to your program emphasis. The scope may include other elements, but at least one aspect must be relatable to your program’s emphasis.

Your solution must include the implementation of a hard deliverable , e.g., hardware/software . Soft deliverables (training, plans, evaluation, policies, etc.) can also be included but cannot meet the requirements alone.

Understand what the project requires and doesn’t require! Watch the videos in the Task 1 and 2 resources section and review these topic approval, task 2, and task 3 examples . An appointment is not required but is encouraged if you have general questions or need guidance.

Write the topic approval follwoing the topic approval form This document should provide a rough outline summarizing your proposed project. Changes from task 1 to task 2 are allowed and typical; evaluators will not rigorously task 1 and 2.

Use Grammarly.com , clearly mark the IRB statement, and email it to your course instructor for their signature. Appointments before approval are not required but are encouraged if you have concerns.

Fill out the IT Capstone Waiver form , and submit it along with the signed topic approval form to assessments.

Afterward, start task 2 -the proposal. For tasks 1, 2, and 3 you can find templates, pacing guides, and more on the C769 IT Capstone website .

Pacing Guide #

Be aware that task 2 and 3 evaluations often take the full three days. Therefore, if you are approaching the end of your term, don’t wait on task 2 to start task 3 and submit task 3 early enough to have it returned, revised, and resubmitted.
