Capstone Project is required for the BSIT/BSIS program. It should be in the form of a systems application or an enterprise resource plan (CMO 53 s. 2006). The skills, methods and theories learned by the students in their stay in the BSIT?BSIS program are applied in this output-oriented course.

This is a very special course in the BSIT?BSIS program. Students do it in the final year of studies and it is their opportunity to demonstrate that they can indeed meet the levels of performance expected of an IT professional. The Capstone Project includes project proposal, feasibility studies, intellectual property, teamwork, budget, schedule, management, professional communications (i.e. reports, presentations), planning, design, implementation, deployment, and testing. Students will be expected to do much more than “get something working”. They will be expected to meet a number of strictly enforced milestones and to take considerable initiative in realizing specific goals. Moreover, the Capstone Project is a way of determining whether students are ready to graduate.

  • The Capstone Project has a number of educational objectives. Although each Research / Capstone Project is different and the relative emphasis will vary, the subject will involve students in:
  • Bringing together and integrating knowledge and skills in the course as a whole;
  • Reinforcing and developing competencies that have not been sufficiently emphasized in the fundamental subjects;
  • Defining a substantial engineering study or design task and carrying it to completion within a specified time and to a professional standard;
  • Completing a comprehensive written and bound report that places the Research / Capstone
  • Project in context, defines its objectives, and describes the work done with the resulting conclusions or recommendations;
  • Bridging the gap between the undergraduate studies and the professional future, and demonstrating professional competencies and capabilities;
  • Demonstrating initiative and creativity, taking pride in the achievement of a difficult task.

The Research / Capstone Project must be useful to any establishment of the same nature or scope. It must not exist or have been proposed by previous Proponents/Researchers. The Research / Capstone Project must not be developed using the off-the-shelf application programs. The proposed computerized system may fall in any of the following categories, but not limited to: Software Development

  • Software Customization (most especially FOSS)
    – Extensions
    – Plug-ins
  • Expert Systems and Decision Support Systems / Intelligent Systems
  • Systems Software (e.g. Utilities, Interpreters, Simulators, Compilers, Security-related Software)
  • IS Development (with at least Alpha Testing with Live Servers
  • Web Applications Development
  • Mobile Computing Systems
  • Computer Vision
  • Multimedia Systems
  • Game Development
  • E-learning Systems
  • Interactive Systems
  • Information Kiosks
  • Network Design and Implementation
  • IT Management
  • IT Strategic Plan
  • IT Security Analysis, Planning and Implementation
