Sent on behalf of Professor Berlin:




December 12, 2018 • 8:50 AM – 6:30 PM

Mason Innovation Exchange – Fenwick Library

Twelve projects will be presented during the day-long showcase.  Detailed agenda will be sent as a follow-up to this invitation, to allow you to plan more specifically. 

Please plan on joining in the discussion, and contribution to the teams’ work!


On behalf of the DAEN faculty, I am pleased to invite you and any of your fellow data savvy student problem solvers, to visit our Fall 2018 Capstone Class (DAEN 690) Final Student Presentation Showcase (agenda attached).  


The December 12th presentations will be hosted at the Mason Innovation Exchange Fenwick Library venue.  Because we have twelve separate team projects, and this is their final graded presentation, you will note from the attached agenda, the showcase will be running all day (8:50am – 6:30pm).  It’s an informal, entrepreneurial space, so visitors are free to drop in for a few presentations throughout the day.


Regardless of where you are in your DAEN journey, your presence will contribute to the success of the current Capstone Cohort – perhaps while also giving you ideas of projects for your future, and methods worth learning.
