SIT374 is the first of two capstone units within the undergraduate IT programs at Deakin University. This unit along with SIT302 Project Delivery allows students to culminate academic and intellectual experiences through the design and execution of a real-world industry project. Projects are work activities with a beginning and an end to create a unique product, service or solutions for a defined purpose. In this unit, students will learn prominent project management methodologies, with a particular emphasis on agile project management for the development of IT solutions. Students’ engagement in the process of planning, organising and delineating responsibility for the completion of an organisation’s specific IT goals will enable them to gain hands-on experience in using industry-standard agile toolset for future work.
