The Capstone project is structured to cover the end-to-end design process of a product development lifecycle. For each project students in the professional masters in Human-Computer Interaction (MHCI) are asked by their sponsors to present out-of-the-box solutions for a problem/need handed to them at the beginning of the year.
The event started with the 2 Minute Madness, where students pitched their projects, followed by group presentations and demo sessions.
The MHCI is a two year dual-degree program, in partnership with the University of Madeira and the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, USA. This is an international program that attracts not only students from Madeira, but from all over the globe.
