Content

This is the first of two undergraduate capstone units for students within the School of Information Technology. The capstone experience provides students with the opportunity to engage in a real-world, industry-relevant IT project, and to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have gained across their studies. In this first unit, students learn about project management methodologies and practices, with a particular emphasis on agile project management. Students will join a team and work under the guidance of students from Team Project (B) to advance an ongoing industry-relevant project. Students will develop hands-on experience in using industry-standard tools to contribute to the project, analyse requirements, design solutions, monitor project progress and productivity, and reflect on sprint and project outcomes.
