This industry experience studio project capstone unit gives students the opportunity to work in teams to research contemporary approaches to system development, develop new skills, and apply the knowledge and skills they have already gained in a practical setting.
Teams will research and create a meaningful and beneficial problem space and then develop and deliver an IT solution for that problem to industry standards, designed for use by organisations and/or community groups. Teams will be self managed and will be a mix of students drawn from all Masters courses in the faculty.
Throughout this process students will need to communicate findings, knowledge and ideas effectively and professionally to a range of stakeholders, with a range of IT knowledge, in relevant and innovative ways. The stakeholders will include academics, peers, project-based stakeholders and senior industry experts. The students will attend unit seminars, carry out research individually and contribute in a professional, committed and collegial manner to the work of their team and studio peers.
