The Department of Information Networking and Telecommunications has offered a capstone class for twelve years. 2008 was the first time that students from the two-year old Information Assurance Emphasis reached the course. With guidance of faculty and support from an industry partner, a team of IA students conducted valuable research studying wireless Wi-Fi 802.11 security deployment practices. This paper examines the purpose and design of the class and the results arrived at by undergraduate students. It describes the learning of both the students and faculty. This paper provides evidence that undergraduate students can conduct quality IA research within this type of class structure.
