This course provides students with an opportunity to work on an Information Technology (IT) or Information System (IS) related real-world business problem and to engage in research. Students will form a team of 3-4 students and work on an IT/IS project with a business client and a project supervisor. A project can be related to development of a new IT/IS solution(s) or review, assessment or recommendation of an existing IT/IS solution(s) to improve client's existing business processes. In this course, students will analyse their client¿s business processes and their IT/IS requirements, opportunities and/or problem(s). Students will conduct research to explore the problem domain in the given project and to investigate how similar problems were dealt in the literature. Students will apply complex decision making and detailed research techniques, tools and methodologies to execute and/or develop a business solution(s) to the clients problem(s). Students will present project outcome(s) to the client in the form of substantial artefacts such as developed product(s) and/or an extensive research report(s) and/or consultancy report(s), etc.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
