Aims & Objectives

This is a core unit out of a total of 24 units in the Bachelor of Networking (BNet). This unit addresses the BNet course learning outcomes and complements other courses in a related field by developing students’ knowledge and skills in network projects. For further course information refer to: http://www.mit.edu.au/study-with-us/programs/bachelor-networking . This unit is part of the AQF Level 7 (BNet) course.

This unit provides students with an in depth discussion of the BN301 Project 1 concepts, methods and principles of core units and provides students with a capstone final year project in network or telecommunication system specification, development, implementation, testing and troubleshooting.  Students apply their skills of project management in a real situation.  Students apply the knowledge gained throughout their course to an application for an actual client in a team environment.

This unit will cover the following topics:

  1. Reflective journal.
  2. Develop spreadsheet of personal industry exposure.
  3. Detailed design.   Test plan.
  4. Identify and solve risk management issues.
  5. Implementation, testing, troubleshooting.
  6. Documentation, presentation.
  7. Final project demonstration.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to conceptualise, design, plan and execute a substantial capstone project;
  2. Apply the knowledge and skills acquired over the core units of the course in planning and executing a capstone project in an area related to Networking;
  3. Orally present the background, design, implementation, results and conclusions to an audience of peers and academic staff;
  4. Through written reflective journals and project reports demonstrate communication and technical skills to identify and interpret problems, methodologies, conclusions and professional decisions;
  5. Demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills with a high level of personal autonomy and accountability while being part of a team-based working environment.
