Yes, it is in the very best interest of all students to finish their project, thesis, or internship at the appointed time and present their work at the capstone presentation event. Students will have a chance to have one-on-one contact with local industry representatives who may come to their presentation. All students who do not present their project, thesis, or internship at the scheduled time will receive a reduction in their final grade.
Capstone presentations are scheduled during the Friday before finals week of the fall and spring semesters. Once the date is set, students should keep this entire day free on their calendars. Students will be required to set up their posters and any other media or materials. If students will be using a computer to demonstrate their capstone, they will need to test their presentations on specifically assigned computer(s) early in the day (time TBD). Presentations will begin in the afternoon and run into the evening (time TBD).
The capstone presentations will be held throughout the IT building in labs, the larger lecture halls, and other venues as appropriate to specific projects. Room assignments and detailed arrangements will be given to students by their capstone advisors prior to the event. Attendees will receive a printed program describing student projects and their locations.
The capstone event will be open to the public, students, friends, family, and members of industry. We invite all Media Arts and Sciences freshman, sophomores, and juniors to this event, as well as a range of other students, faculty, and professionals from throughout the campus and the community.
Students should look professional at the capstone event. Dress should be business casual at a minimum. We encourage students to consider wearing a suit especially since potential employers may be attending the event.
