Content

SIT782 is a capstone unit that will draw on the area of the student's study and continue directly from SIT764 which allows the students to demonstrate the synthesis of knowledge, methodologies and professional skills acquired during their study of IT.  Skills will include communication and teamwork skills, implementation techniques, system testing and quality control, writing skills and project management skills. The outcome of the project 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, though multi-disciplinary teams and projects are also encouraged.

Students will have the opportunity to learn how to formulate and implement a project.  Students will identify a potential problem or technical gap and experience how to solve it using methods, algorithms and techniques pertinent to the field of IT. Students will be required to further formulate necessary design and/or development strategies, work collaboratively with peers to manage and conduct the implementation of the project and demonstrate outcomes achieved against project goals and targets.
