BCS 430: Senior Project

The primary objective of this capstone course is to give Computer Programming and
Information Systems students an opportunity to integrate techniques and concepts
acquired in their other courses. Elements will be drawn primarily from BCS301 (Systems Analysis and Design) and BCS260 (Database), in addition to other courses in the student's selected track of study. The course is experiential in nature, i.e., the student will be required to produce results for use by real individuals and will be evaluated both on process and product.  Credits: 3.00


BCS 260 and BCS 310, and senior level standing.
