This is a group project course which will expose students to all aspects of project development. Students work in a team of 3 to 6 to design, develop, manage, and deliver an IT software application project to an external (real or simulated) client.
Students will study and employ the practical and theoretical concepts obtained in the first year systems analysis and design courses by building an IT system. Learners will work as part of a development team on an IT problem for an external industry client. The project will include the production and demonstration of the functioning components of the system for each release within deadlines set out in the project management documentation. Students will present the final product to the client.
Students will also practice project management, documentation, meeting and presentation skills. As a contributor to a computer system development project, learners will prepare for and participate in project meetings, prepare project management documentation, adapt project management processes as required, manage progress using project management techniques and manage storage of project documentation.
