The multi-disciplinary subject enables final year students from law, business and information technology disciplines to work together to design, implement, and evaluate a real life project sourced from industry partner organisations. Identification of suitable student projects occurs through collaboration between faculty and industry partner organisations. The subject allows students to make the necessary links between theory and workplace practice, further develop problem solving, creative, organisational and teamwork skills and gain insight into the knowledge and skills of other disciplines relevant to their chosen industry practice.

Learning Outcomes
