Project based learning

 

Immersive, experiential learning is a fundamental part of this course. Our project-based learning approach ensures you develop practical skills on real business and technical challenges early in the course so you can hone these skills throughout your learning.

Real-world briefs

You will experience the full process of undertaking a project with a client – from initial brief and development to review and final presentation, as well as gaining the best practice skills to provide effective handover of a completed project.

Client Projects

Some projects are also client based, offering the opportunity to practise these new skills in a professional environment. You will develop an understanding of a client’s business, needs and expectations, as well as building all-important professional networks and a portfolio of work achievements to take into the workforce.

These client projects offer a supportive and guided introduction to the Australian workforce and tangible work experience to list on your CV.

Capstone

These and other projects, at the earlier stages of the course, can be the inspiration for your final Capstone, an applied project designed to help you demonstrate the mastery of the skills you’ve developed throughout the course, to be presented at a final industry showcase event.

“As an honours student, I discovered a talent for teaching when I started instructing IT undergraduates.  I enjoyed the opportunity to connect with students and help them achieve their academic goals.  This passion for teaching continued into my professional years, where I was able to make a broader impact on higher education by introducing and supporting academics from various disciplines to cutting-edge technologies. I am looking forward to teaching this dynamic new course and meeting the students that are excited by our project based approach.”
