Content

This is the second of two postgraduate capstone units for students within the School of Information Technology. In this unit, students will extend their experiences of IT projects by executing a real-world, industry-relevant project and synthesise knowledge and technical as well as other professional skills acquired during their course. Students will join a team as senior members, and provide guidance and mentoring to SIT764 Team Project (A) – Project Management and Practices students. As a team, they will apply agile project management methods to iteratively create enhancements to a unique IT product, service or solution in a highly flexible and interactive manner. 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.

In this second capstone unit, students will demonstrate achievement of course learning outcomes by drawing upon a combination of work they contribute to the project and work completed in other units, respectively. Together, the capstone units will guide students to effectively engage with and contribute to industry-relevant projects, to communicate most important project factors to stakeholders, focus on project delivery, and enable them to manage IT projects within defined scopes and schedules.
