Information Technology Project
After an introduction to the appropriate skills and tools, students form groups, each of which works on a major IT project for the semester. Projects typically involve database design and implementation, programming, interface design, and writing and reporting, and individual group members will contribute as appropriate to these tasks. Students are encouraged to find and develop real projects with industry partners. The written project report is complemented with an oral presentation.
