This is a project-oriented class where the result of the project is a real-world implementation that meets the requirements of a community group such as a charity, non-profit organization, or educational institution. Students work in teams on the entire application development life cycle from requirements analysis through to maintenance. Lectures cover a range of topics such as practical application of requirements analysis, systems design, and database design methodological skills developed in prerequisite courses or from prior equivalent experience.
The community formed in the projects class is one that you will carry with you throughout your degree. In each group there will be people from different backgrounds in different stages of their program. Since the course is offered in each semester students continue to make friends and work with the same people throughout their degree. Students work on a variety of projects for a diverse set of clients.
Informatics students are required to take this course in each study semester, unlike many university courses you have the opportunity to continue working with the same class throughout your degree.
