This whole year course is for students majoring in Information Systems (IS) who wish to gain an understanding of the issues that influence ICT projects and experience the design, and implementation, of such a project. The course combines theoretical elements of project management with the practical implementation of these concepts through the completion of a systems development team project, integrating elements learned during other undergraduate IS courses.
The theoretical parts of this course aim to make the project team experiences more true to life, aiding the development of a project practitioner. Students should be aware that successful project management consists of a sound plan (using project management tools and techniques) and strong people management to direct the plan through to the completion of the project’s deliverables. The basis for this development process is an interactive project team environment of learning through experiences and reflection. The practical part of this course involves the application and implementation of these concepts, following the full life cycle of a project, using a team-based IS project in a real-life setting. It aims to equip the student with crucial problem-solving skills using object-oriented techniques and to improve technical document writing skills.
You can download the latest course outline and schedule from the course website (Vula). A special structure will be followed to accommodate INF3011F students within the framework of this course.
