This subject gives students the opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge and practical skills acquired during their course of study in the Master of Technology (MIT) program. Students undertake a real world industry based project integrated across the two subjects ICT728 Capstone Project 1 and ICT729 Capstone Project 2. Academic and industry experts provide workshops for students each week on aspects related to IT projects.
Students are encouraged to identify and select their project according to their interests prior to the start of the trimester. Subject coordinators will provide support and assist students in this process if students experience difficulty in finding an appropriate industry project.
For their capstone project, students engage in the entire process of solving a real world information technology project in terms of systems proposal, design, implementation, evaluation, and report writing. Work in each assessment builds towards the final report which is to be completed at the end of ICT729. In ICT728 students are required to finalise the project topic, scope, proposal, literature review, and design method for their capstone project.
