COMP5705: Information Technology Short Project

This is a short 6cp IT project unit of study that can be taken either stand-alone as a short IT project during winter or summer schools, or as an internship-project as part of an industry-based scholarship such as the Faculty's Postgraduate Industry Project Placement Scheme (PIPPS). The focus is on the development of a client-focused solution with proper project management and documentation. For such students who follow the internship model of one day a week over both semester 1 and semester 2, COMP5705 can be combined with COMP5706 IT Industry Placement Project.
