2018 Capstone Presentations

Join us on Friday, July 27th for NYU CUSP's 2018 Capstone Presentations!

NYU CUSP’s Capstone Program is a six month applied urban analytics project that partners CUSP Urban Informatics graduate student teams lead by a faculty advisor with a public, private sector, or academic organization that is looking to address a critical urban issue or research problem. The Capstone is the experiential learning focus of the CUSP M.S. program. Capstone projects approach real-world challenges through problem identification and scoping, data collection, and applying data analytics and visualization techniques. Student teams possess a combination of technical data analytics, visualization, and machine learning skills as well as a strong real-world urban vision and will utilize urban data science techniques within the constraints of political, social, and financial considerations as well as address issues of data privacy, validity, and transparency.
