This subject is the capstone project for the Informatics major and the Computing and Software Systems major in the BSc. Students will work on a real life problem in a small team, supervised by a member of staff. Each team will analyse the information needs of users and develop working computational solutions. Students are expected to apply sound principles studied over the course of their degree to the formulation and solution of their problem.
Students will work in teams to analyse, design, implement and test a non-trivial IT system. A key part of the project is for students to develop and manage a project in order to deliver a quality IT product. Workshops will explore the application of theory to the project and include selected topics drawn from: ethics, project management, design frameworks, testing, technical reviews, and product evaluation.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of this subject students are expected to be able to:
- 1.Undertake problem identification, formulation and solution
- 2.Analyse, design, implement and test a system
- 3.Communicate effectively, not only with other IT professionals, but also with the community at large
- 4.Apply IT principles to the development of non-trivial systems
On completion of this subject students should have developed the following generic skills:
- Ability to undertake problem identification, formulation and solution
- Ability to utilise a systems approach to design and operational performance
- Ability to function effectively as an individual and in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, with the capacity to be a leader or manager as well as an effective team member.
