Large-scale projects in industry and the government require the efforts and contributions of people from different disciplines, institutions, and perspectives. Capstone projects, however, are undertaken most commonly by single-discipline teams of students unless opportunities are specifically provided for them to be in an interdisciplinary team. Using the NASA Psyche Mission interdisciplinary capstone projects as a model, a team of students are working to design and deploy a web-based system to help students learn about and join available interdisciplinary capstone projects and to also post and search for students with other skillsets needed to make their project a success.

This work was created in partial fulfillment of Arizona State University Capstone Courses “CSE 485-486”. The work is a result of the Psyche Student Collaborations component of NASA’s Psyche Mission ( “Psyche: A Journey to a Metal World” [Contract number NNM16AA09C] is part of the NASA Discovery Program mission to solar system targets.
