Abstract

The purpose of this project is to provide the MSCSIS program a Capstone Management System (CMS) for the students, faculty, administrators, and program director to automate the capstone thesis or project process. The CMS is a web application that captures data and automates the workflow of a student’s capstone thesis or project. The CMS is designed to automate the process as much as possible and capture useful data for reporting to the program director. The CMS uses many of the latest web technologies available today including C# with the ASP.net 4.5 framework, the latest Bootstrap user interface framework, and a single page application (SPA) design for each role in the system. The CMS is compatible with all modern web browsers and is designed for use on mobile devices such as tablets and phones. The CMS enables students, faculty, and the program director to complete the capstone process using an integrated web application. The CMS simplifies the current manual approval process saving time for all stakeholders. The CMS also provides high level reporting capabilities for high level decision making.
