Event description

Description

Background (Capstone Project and Pitch Night):

Students of several programs of our School of IT including CP-Computer Programmer, CPA- Computer Programmer/Analyst, ITID - IT Innovation and Design, MSD – Mobile Solutions Development, CAD – Computer Applications Development, CAS – Computer Application Security are required to complete a large project called Capstone project in their final semester. Through these projects the students are expected to be involved in designing and implementing business solutions for problems/projects provided by real life clients.


Time-to-time we receive project ideas from potential clients and our capstone projects suits very nicely in fulfilling their requirements. In this process the clients get their projects done and at the same time our students get a real life experience. In order to enhance this outcome, we started organizing a networking event called the Pitch night where we expect our students to attend and meet the potential clients. In this event the clients are expected to make a 5-10 min presentation about their projects (with an optional Powerpoint presentation) in front of the audience so that the students can get a better idea about the requirements of the projects and necessary skill set. After that the student teams (composed of 2-4 members) may select an appropriate project and finalize with the clients. If more than one team is interested in a single project, the client may decide which team to go forward with. If the project is large enough in scope the client may choose multiple teams by dividing the scope.


We think meeting the clients and students face to face during this event will enhance the whole capstone project process for both students and clients alike. The proposal (fillable pdf document, attached) that the clients are requested to submit will also be made available to our online learning system eConestoga portal and the students including those who might be absent during the event will be able to access.
