Abstract

[The abstract is NOT an introduction. It is a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents of
the paper. The abstract:

• Allows readers to quickly survey the content of the paper.
• Is accurate, non-evaluative, coherent, readable, and concise.
• Should contain key words that relate it to the paper contents.
• Should contain the four or five most important concepts or main points of the paper.
• Defines the final product to be produced.
• In the proposal is a preliminary statement of intention. It is written in the third person,future tense and is based on the student’s existing

information and knowledge of the field at the time it is written. It will have to be updated in the Capstone paper to reflect what the student actually

did, where it will be revised to the third person, past and present tense (as appropriate).
• Is typically limited to between 150 to 250 words, but must be no more than 250 words]

Assessing the Implications and Challenges Associated with the Development and

Implementation of the NextGen Air Transportation System

[The title, exactly as written on the front page, should be repeated to open the body of the
proposal]

Statement of the Project

[This section must briefly:

• Explain the fundamental purpose of the paper (i.e. demonstrating skill at the 11 POs)
• Explain the type of project (in this case, and individual project)
• Describe the student’s degree program]

Introduction

[In the Introduction the student should:

• Introduce the reader to the topic of the paper.
• Provide the reader with any historical or background information the student believes necessary to the aid the reader’s understanding of the

paper.
• Explain why the topic of the paper is important to the field.
• Define the scope and depth of the project.
• Summarize the procedures the student will use in developing the paper (i.e. information and data gathering; analysis, evaluation and synthesis;

application of critical thought)]

The introduction should be concise, and should be limited to no more than one page.

Program Outcomes to be Addressed
