Unit description

This unit continues the project in ISY10221 - Computing Project I. It requires students to control and finalise their project and perform software prototyping, coding, testing and installation. Students will have opportunities to demonstrate and apply their skills of project management, software validation, programming, testing, documentation, communication and maintenance of relationships with other stakeholders. A student will demonstrate skills specific to their major of study as well as core skills applied to the project undertaken.
