This capstone course concludes with a research-based Course Project that starts during the first week of the session and continues throughout the duration of the course. It culminates with the submission of a formal, written report in Week 7. In addition to the final outcomes, students will also conduct a peer evaluation of another student’s project in order to provide feedback that enhances the work in a collaborative environment. For the project, each student will identify and explore an emerging technology. This will be a technology that may already exist but is drawing attention because of new applications, anticipated impacts, or potential controversies. Examples could include but are in no way limited to, the following subjects. Nanotechnology Genetically modified organisms Drones Automatic cars Remote or robotic surgery Wireless electricity The student will address the historical, social, cultural, moral, and ethical issues presented by their selected technology.
