MSIS Capstone: Hands-on Projects
Rather than sitting in a library cubicle or study room to complete the final step in earning an MS in Information Systems degree, Santa Clara MSIS students go to work in an organization, where they join forces with employees, managers, and executives to develop and implement practical, hands-on solutions to a company's information technology challenges.
Santa Clara's MSIS capstone project is a six-unit course sequence that spans two quarters. Students take on a single project over the 20 weeks of the two course sequence, and are responsible for the entire process, from project requirements to implementation. During the process, students form valuable working relationships with each other, faculty mentors, and leaders in the organization with which they work.
