The MS in Financial Engineering Capstone Project

The Financial Engineering Capstone project requires students to apply their Financial Engineering knowledge in a case-based learning environment. The Lehigh MS in Financial Engineering program is a mix of financial theory, applied mathematics, and engineering.
