Cybersecurity Fall 2020 Capstone Project Showcase

Wednesday, December 9, 2020
4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Capstone projects are the culmination of the MICS students’ work in the School of Information’s Master of Information and Cybersecurity program.

Over the course of their final semester, teams of students propose and select project ideas, conduct and communicate their work, receive and provide feedback, and deliver compelling presentations along with a web-based final deliverable. A panel of judges will select an outstanding project for the Lily L. Chang MICS Capstone Award.

Join us for an online presentation of these capstone projects. Each team will present for twenty minutes, including Q&A.
