I – Subject Description:
This course offers BSIT students the opportunity to demonstrate that they can indeed meet the levels of performance expected of an IT Professional. It includes project proposal, feasibility studies, intellectual property, teamwork, budget, schedule, and management, professional communications (i.e. reports, presentations, planning, design, implementation, deployment, and testing. Moreover, the Capstone Project is a way of determining whether students are ready to graduate.
II – Goals and Objectives:
At the end of the course, the student should be able to:
1. Show mastery and efficiency in software development.
– To analyze a current system and to propose a design (capstone project) for the improvement of the system.
– To develop and implement the proposed capstone project.
2. Practice professionalism in carrying out task within a period of time.
– To effectively and efficiently perform duties and responsibilities to meet the needs of a client.
III – Instructional Modes
