The Industry Experience (IE) project gives our final year students the opportunity to develop an IT system for a business client. They apply the knowledge and skills they have learned throughout their degree in a genuine professional environment.
IE projects usually run over two consecutive semesters, during which students work in groups of four or five to design, develop and deliver an information system for a client. The team manages the project through all its development stages, learning to communicate effectively with all project stakeholders, develop project documentation to a professional standard, present their work to academics and other groups, attend unit seminars, and contribute in a professional and committed manner to the work of the group.
Academic supervisors mentor and oversee students’ work and progress throughout.
