- Capstone Project*
*The capstone project is not a regular course, it an independent project undertaken by the student under agreement with a faculty advisor. The faculty advisor provides only supervision and assessment of the project and not regular instruction. Upon completion of the project and by the pre-agreed deadline the student submits the project to the faculty advisor, who then assesses it and report the pass or fail grade (pass ≥ 75%) to the registrar’s, who in turn issues the certificate. The registrar’s will keep all projects on file for a minimum of 2 years.
