iMasons Senior Capstone Recap
Many bachelors degrees in Engineering, Architecture, Business and other disciplines include a senior project designed to integrate the students’ learning and focus them on a real-world problem. iMasons has developed a senior Capstone Project to have teams of students site and then design the digital infrastructure needed to support the specs and growth forecast of a mobile phone app. The program was piloted at Hampton University, a Historically Black College or University (HBCU) in So. Virginia, USA for the 20/21 academic year.
