2021 Capstone Presentation Day
Monday, August 9th, 2021
NYU CUSP’s Capstone program brings together student teams with government agencies, industry, or other research partners to address real-world urban challenges through data. The capstone presentation event is the culmination of their six-month projects and marks the final presentation of the students’ work during their studies at CUSP.
Projects consist of team-based work on a pressing urban issue. Teams work with a project sponsor to define the problem, collect and analyze data, visualize the results, and, finally, formulate and deliver a possible solution. Student teams are challenged to utilize urban informatics within the context of city operations and planning, while considering political, social, and economic realities and data management and ethics. The goal of each project is to create impactful, replicable, and actionable results that inform data-driven urban operations and a new understanding of city dynamics.
