This course is designed to help students successfully complete their MES Capstone.  A set of milestones will be set and regular meetings will be held in groups and individually to aid the student as they complete the research portion of their degree.  We will be working together to complete a series of steps towards the final project.  These steps fall into five major areas: 1. Reviewing the literature; 2. Finding a model; 3. Framing your research; 4. managing data; 5. Writing your results.  Throughout the semester we will also discuss career goals and the job search.
