On this page we will tell you about ourselves.

   After two years of the capstone experience, more than 200 teams have participated in more than 122 full-scale projects in which many have multi-phases and some have involved multi-team structures .. This implies that the capstone program has actually delivered more than 200 full-scale projects , large sub-projects  or complex  project-phases in just two years .   By the end of Fall 2004 , the capstone program was able to establish project-based relationships with more than 82 sponsors in which more than 82% are external business or organizations to NJIT .Our sponsors list include 6  Fortune 500 companies  , 51 medium to small to large  size companies across the tri state area , 8 sponsors from New Jersey  colleges and universities , 5 public services departments or agencies at the city , state or national levels  and 7 unique projects sponsored from NJIT faculty. We expect 35-40 teams (200 students) to be available for new projects by Spring 2005 .
