UCT Information Systems Honours - Project Proposal Submission (2021) 17/01/2022

UCT Information Systems Honours - Project Proposal Submission (2021)

Dear Industry Partners,

Information Systems (IS) Honours students are required to complete a software development (SD) project in their final year of study. The project is usually based on a business problem or opportunity, with well-defined requirements. Every year these ’real-life’ projects provide invaluable industry experience to the students, something we cannot simulate with just a normal case study. We usually obtain these project requirements from industry partners, who also act as project sponsors.

The Information Systems Department would like to invite you to collaborate with us on the IS Honours Programme in 2022 by submitting an SD project proposal and acting as project sponsor for one of our IS Honours teams: https://bit.ly/3GEzw0i

Sponsors are required to:
- Act as product owner
- Specify the requirements and provide feedback to the students as they work towards understanding these requirements and conceptualise the system

The final product provided by the students is usually a proof of concept. Moreover, all Intellectual Property rights are retained by the project sponsor. This is stipulated in a sponsor agreement form signed by all parties involved.

We also need projects for the third year Systems Development course and projects that we do not utilise for the honours class can be passed on to the third years. Hence the same form could serve both groups.

Should you be interested, please complete the above Google Form by 30 January 2022. You are also most welcome to contact us directly should you have a project idea that you would like to discuss.

Thank You,

Elsje Scott (Honours) and Walter Uys (Third year)

We would appreciate it if you could send us a project proposal by completing the attached form. You can also fill out the form online at https://bit.ly/3tli5xG.

Congratulations once again Dr Mluleki Majavu!

"Having come from a poor, rural background, Majavu did not see himself graduating from a university one day, and the idea of obtaining a PhD seemed even more far‑fetched. Majavu’s path to obtaining his PhD included working as a security guard by night and attending university during the day."
