Capstone Projects

Capstone courses are culminating, project-based courses undertaken by university students in the final (senior) year of university.

A strength of capstone courses is that they involve students in applying their knowledge and skills to real-world projects. The Psyche mission is developing Psyche-focused projects for capstone courses across a range of disciplines.

Current Capstone Projects

Psyche capstone projects have expanded beyond ASU for the 2018-2019 academic year, partnering with California State University-Los Angeles, Cleveland State University, Florida A&M University-Florida State University, Michigan State University, Pennsylvania State University and Virginia Commonwealth University.
