Systems Prototyping Project
'This course is the capstone for IS majors and is designed to assist students in further developing their project management and hands-on programming skills. It emphasizes the management principles that apply to technology development along with practical skills required to develop systems to solve real world problems using the latest available technologies. Students have the opportunity to learn system design and project management concepts, and then apply these principles to projects in the business community. For this reason, the course challenges students to bring together all the computer, information systems and management skills they have acquired to produce a final, capstone project, which is presented to their clients and peers. The goal of the course is to give students experience in working with real users and state-of-the-art software tools such as Cold Fusion to prepare them for the jobs that await them in industry.'
