Department of Systems Engineering (DSE) Capstone groups met with their assigned advisor and began to plan for the next eight months applying their skills to solve real-world problems. Cadets participate in a year-long capstone experience as Firsties. They work with a faculty advisor on a complex problem for a client, using the Systems Decision Process (SDP) and other tools they have acquired through their academic experience.
Cadets are involved in 34 Capstones during AY21 (including several interdisciplinary capstones that work with cadets from other departments), with clients ranging from US Army Africa Command to Lockheed Martin to MITRE. The Capstone experience culminates at the General Donald R. Keith Memorial Capstone Conference at the end of April 2021.
