Business partners are at the heart of the CAPS program. The program features problem-based learning brought in by business partners. There is no minimum threshold of involvement and finding the right fit for each business partner is a priority. Mentors and guest speakers are always in demand as well as project and hosting a satelite classroom for our students. For more information, contact Kelly Lay, NEWcaps Director (

Guest Speakers and Site Visits

Professional guests (Industry experts) and industry visits are an integral part of the NEWcaps program. Classroom instruction will be project-based with minimal lectures and textbook use. Therefore, input and involvement from industry professionals is the key to success.
