During the senior year, students concentrate their most in-depth studies in one (or more) of the sectors chosen during their Junior Year (Year 3).  Students also complete their Senior Capstone Project.

Sector Concentration

Sector Concentrations consist of 4 senior-level classes (12 credits of coursework)  that are required to complete a single concentration.

  • Most of the coursework is offered in the ISAT Department, but courses can be drawn from other departments in the College and the University
  • Students may substitute courses in a concentration in consultation with their advisors
  • Double concentrations can also be done and usually require seven courses
  • Courses taken to fulfill sector requirements cannot be used to fulfill concentration requirements
  • Students have the option to create their own tailored concentration by putting together any four senior-level ISAT courses with approval from a faculty advisor and the Program Director
  • Students declare their concentration online through the student portal in MyMadison.
Senior Capstone Project

The Senior Capstone Project gives students an opportunity to use the knowledge and skills they learned in ISAT to address a real-world problem, to receive valuable hands-on experience, and to build a bridge to the next stage of their professional career.  Students present their work in a final project report, both in written form and in the form of an oral presentation to the faculty, their student peers, and the public.
