dc.description.abstract <p>The 2011 Outcomes Assessment Model for accreditation by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) requires coursework in both management and technical areas of technology, with a “reasonable balance” between the practical application of “how” and more conceptual application of “why” (ATMAE Outcomes Assessment Model, 2013). One way to meet this requirement is with a senior capstone course. Capstone courses focus on the integration and application of technical skills and knowledge along with consideration of multiple realistic constraints. A high quality capstone experience has many positive outcomes for the student, faculty, and department. However, capstone courses can be challenging for both students and faculty.</p>
