The Capstone Course completes the Master of Real Estate Development degree. An individual project that integrates knowledge from all parts of the MRED curriculum, the course is typically taught by a seasoned developer who works with 4-6 students on one or more real development sites. Each student completes a feasibility study with drawings provided by an architecture consultant on a site selected by the professor. Several projects are presented below.
