Capstones and Courses

Capstone Advisors and Funding Opportunities

The DevLab helps NYUAD students find a Capstone advisor who is aligned with and can support their research interests in the field of Development. The DevLab will guide students in selecting a mentor based on their prior experience as well as future research and career aspirations. Related to this, the lab provides assistance to students to enhance their skillsets in research methodologies through workshops to prepare and execute their Capstone projects. Apart from research methodologies, the lab will also assist students in developing research ideas for their Capstones.
