Applied Research Project 1

Applied Research Project 1 - CST8414

Experience with practical projects provides students with learning opportunities to gain industry-relevant insight and experience. Through collaborative participation in applied research projects and working closely with stakeholders in real-world workplace environments, students develop solutions for problems of significant technical complexity. The phases of software development are expanded on including gathering requirements, documenting, designing, coding and testing working software prototypes. Knowledge about testing, debugging and quality assurance is expanded along with Agile software development methodology practices including Scrum, Kanban and Lean. Drawing upon skills previously acquired, students plan, conduct research for, and begin the creation of a written report that summarizes the work and findings resulting from the first release of the project.
