Seniors in the Department of Engineering and Information Technology at Mizzou conclude their coursework with a capstone project. Through these projects, they apply what they’ve learned in their classes to create a product, such as a website or mobile app, that solves a real-world problem.
Students work together in teams to design, develop and test the product. This experience gives students the hands-on preparation they need to be successful after graduation.
Projects in the fall semester ranged from a personal inventory system, a digital planner to a scavenger hunt app.
One capstone group even created a program geared toward prospective students that allows them to learn more about the Information Technology degree program. Users explore the EIT office space and two additional classrooms, as well as watch videos of EIT faculty discussing teaching methods, student expectations, courses offered and advice on how to succeed in the program.
To create the program, the capstone students scanned the department suite and classrooms to create an immersive environment for the user and conducted interviews with faculty with specific questions geared for prospective students.
Below are EIT capstone projects from the Fall 2022 semester. Take a few moments to learn how students develop solutions to engineering problems.
