Description This capstone unit gives students a 'real-world' experience of IT solution development. Teams of students are assigned projects with clients from academia, NGO's and industry. Teams will build on the skills developed during the study of their majors in areas such as process modelling, systems design, and implementation of IT solutions relevant to the assigned project. The project culminates with a public presentation of the project deliverables. Students are expected to enrol in this unit in their final teaching period.
