MEDS Capstone Projects

The MEDS program ends with a group Capstone project where students work in teams of 3-4 to design, develop and share a deliverable that helps a client to gain insights, answer questions, and/or create communication materials using environmental data. The goal of the MEDS Capstone is to help students build real-world data science and professional skills while working with a client to complete a project using environmental data.

The Request for Proposals opens in the Spring for the following year. For more information about Capstone projects please visit the Bren School MEDS Capstone Projects.



Bren School releases a MEDS Request for Proposals. Proposals for MEDS Capstone Projects may be submitted by faculty, students, and prospective clients.


Submission period for new proposals ends. A committee of students, faculty, and staff selects appropriate projects. Students vote on and join project teams at the end of Fall Quarter.


Students meet clients, refine project objectives, develop a design and implementation plan, host a meeting with the client and advisors, and begin preliminary product development.


Students complete data science products, write technical documentation, host a meeting with the client and advisors, and present their work in a final product demonstration or visualization.
