CP3102 - Multidisciplinary Project

Credit points: 3
Year: 2020
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Science and Engineering

This subject is one of two capstones offered through the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Program for Information Technology. The subject enables final year students to work together in groups to investigate and develop an IT related project sourced from industry. Capstone subjects allow students to apply and integrate the knowledge, skills and capabilities learned throughout their Bachelor of Information Technology degree while at the same time fostering the development of professional identities and transition to the workplace. Identification of suitable projects occurs through collaboration between the College and industry partner organisations. Students work in groups of up to six with each group having a mix of majors. Students are advised of their allocated group in the first timetabled workshop. It is a requirement that students attend the 3 hour timetabled workshop each week. Students conduct project work in addition to this contact time and receive support and project direction from academics and industry partner for the project's duration. External students are not eligible to enrol in this subject. Students at JCUS should consult Academic Staff.
