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.
