ICT 4903 - Applied Capstone Seminar
In the Applied Capstone Seminar, students propose, develop and deliver a cloud-based application that demonstrates the ability to apply the technical knowledge developed throughout their program of studies. In addition to demonstrating competence in applying what they have learned to date, students are challenged to expand their skills by virtue of the development environments, tools, and technologies they use to develop and deliver their projects. The primary deliverables are functional software, accompanied by representative design documents. As such, the project represents in microcosm the development processes, practices and deliverables that are typically entailed in producing robust, cloud-based software solutions. Although each student develops an individual project, the seminar also requires student collaboration via such activities as design reviews, quality reviews and peer exchanges on such topics as suggestions for solving problems and improving code. Prerequisite: To register for this course, a student must be accepted as a degree candidate, have completed at least 40 quarter-hours (including all core courses), and have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better. In addition, the student must be approved for registration by the course professor and the ICT Director. This seminar is limited to students in the Software Design & Programming, Web Design & Development, Mobile Application Development, and Database Design & Programming concentrations, and who are judged to have the requisite level of technical skills to be successful in this demanding seminar. A final grade of B- or better is required in this course to meet degree requirements. Students must complete the Applied Capstone Seminar in one quarter; no incomplete grades are permitted.
