In both the fall and Spring semesters, cohorts of Seniors presented their final projects which marked the culmination of their learnings in the MIS program. In the Fall, the showcase featured ten teams of seniors who presented projects on everything from automated grocery store checkout to a better way to find events in the area. The winning team, which was selected by a panel of industry experts and Temple faculty, designed a platform for engineers to procure and track equipment for universities and makerspaces. The platform uses digital forms and cloud technology to procure lab equipment transparently.

Nine teams of seniors from three classes, as selected by their professors, presented their final projects.
