Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This is a major capstone project based upon skills attained in Information Science Research Methodology PG. This unit builds on the core units in network engineering OR software engineering and draws those various elements together to synthesize the theory and practice of network or software construction.
The unit uses a variety of tools and techniques to manage, design, analyse and implement high-quality practical information systems in a project typical of systems that exist in industry, government and small business.
Students will be guided to use these tools and techniques within a sound framework of software engineering or network engineering principles.
Project and quality management, and system design and implementation procedures, covered in earlier subjects are expected to be applied with emphasis on proper planning and control.
Project management reviews and usability evaluations, design and use of test data and procedures, and provision of high-quality interactive interfaces that are simple to use are expected.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Analyse and construct the target project effectively and efficiently within a team;

2. Determine and generate the project management approach to implement a high-quality practical project;

3. Analyse and interpret the relations and interrelations among the different components of the project; and

4. Interpret and apply engineering and quality assurance principles in the software and systems development environment.
