The aim of the capstone experience is for learners to bring together the knowledge gained in all previous modules by undertaking a task that addresses a current, BIMM-related, and possibly ill-defined, problem or issue that is based in practice.

The learner is responsible for identifying the problem, investigating possible solutions by critically analysing the existing body of knowledge as reported in academic and professional sources, designing and implementing a reliable solution, rigorously analysing and evaluating the success of the solution, and reporting the results to a professional standard. The Capstone paper is the final outcome of this experience.
