Cal Poly has extremely well-known programs in Construction Management, Business, Engineering, and Architecture. All of these programs have contributed multiple leaders to the building industry every year yet have neglected to integrate the different disciplines that overlap within the industry. The research the author has collected to support the need for a real estate development capstone course included in-person interviews, online research, personal experience, and team surveys. The research concluded the need for a real estate development capstone course that would integrate students from the school of Business, Architecture, and Construction Management. In order to build a successful project, all disciplines generally should work together to help navigate the different stages of a project. The creation of the real estate development capstone experience would allow students to graduate with a better understanding of all parties’ roles associated with a given project. In addition, students would be able to demonstrate to industry leaders a complete understanding of the built environment while they would have the ability to show a tangible real-world example of work in their specific field.
