Content

This is a capstone unit that will draw on the area of the student's study. Normally the project will be completed in a team with members drawn from any campus. This unit will allow students to demonstrate the synthesis of knowledge, methodologies and professional skills acquired during their study of IT with a focus on their stream or major (computer science and software development, games design and development, IT security, interactive media). Skills will include communication and teamwork skills, analysis and design skills, implementation techniques, system testing and quality control, writing skills and project management skills. The substantive/concrete outcome of the project will vary according to the stream of study and, thus, could be a software artefact in the case of a computer science and software development project, a model in the case of a security project, or a multimedia package in the case of an interactive media project for example.

Assessment

Project proposal (proposal and plan, research and investigation) 10%, analysis and design phase 40%, delivery and/or production of the artefact 30%, presentation 10%, self-reflection/critique 10%
