Capstone Team Project
-Nine, four unit courses
-Six courses are held on Fridays & Saturdays
-Three courses are held Wednesday-Saturday
- Team Project:
-The capstone team project, equivalent to four courses/year, will be conducted throughout execution of the program. A topic will be selected during the first quarter of enrollment in the program and will be worked in conjunction with industrial partners. Performance on the Capstone team project will be used as the primary measure of the student's learning the AESE program. Progress on the project, as assessed in the context of each course, will be a major determinant for the grade assigned to the individual student. Each student will be evaluated based on their grasp of the course material and their ability to apply the course material to the team project.
