INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROJECT

CSE5ITP

2021

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

The project focuses on developing students' skills in teamwork, system design, implementation, testing and documentation. Students learn to design Information Technology projects covering network management or software development or data science for efficiency, portability and re-use, as well as to take advantage of different standards and system utilities, data and information management techniques. The projects require students to work in small development teams and result in the development of a small-scale industry-based system. The laboratory work is designed to bring students up to speed on relevant development skills and to provide them with a working knowledge sufficient for industrial-type network, data science and software development projects. The subject also integrates previously learned skills and knowledge relating to social and ethical issues.
