IV. SUGGESTED AREAS OF CAPSTONE PROJECT


The Capstone Project should integrate the different courses, knowledge, and
competencies learned in the curriculum. Students are encouraged to produce

innovative results, generate new knowledge or theories, or explore new frontiers of


knowledge or application areas.
The following are suggested research areas for each capstone project:
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology
1. Software Development

Software Customization
Information Systems Development for an actual client (with final testing
and implementation)
Web Applications Development (with final testing on live servers)
Mobile Computing Systems-apps

2. Multimedia Systems

Game Development
e-Learning Systems
Interactive Systems/Moodle
Information Kiosks

3. Network Design and Implementation and Server Farm Configuration


and Management
4. IT Management

CAPSTONE PROJECT TEAM


The Capstone Project team is composed of at most four (4) members. The
following are the roles that the Proponentsshould play:

Leader-Project Manager (PM) - The person with authority to manage


aCapstone Project. This includes leading the planning and the development of
allCapstone Project deliverables. The project manager is responsible for the
budget, work plan and all Project Management Procedures (scope management,
issues management, risk management, etc.). He/She is responsible for the
success of the entire activity.

Systems Analyst / Database Designer (SA/DD) the person who checks that

Software Engineer / Programmer (SE/P) - The person who design, write, and
test computer programs. He/She coordinates well with the ND/UID.
QA Tester/ Technical Writer (QA/TW) - A person who ensures the quality of the
software product and help find and eliminate any bugs. He/She determines the
functionality of every aspect of a particular application. A person who finalizes
theCapstone Project study document. He/She coordinates well with the SE/P.

Duties and Responsibilities of the Proponents


1. Must comply on the Capstone Project Guidelines and Policies of the
department.
2. Must comply of the schedule ofCapstone Project activities, required
deliverables and deadlines posted by the Class Instructor.
3. Must meet all deadlines for deliverables specified in this document including
specified requirements by the Class Instructor and Technical Adviser.
4. Must comply on time of all the requirements identified by the Capstone
Project Defense Panel.
5. Must comply the requirements identified by the Class Instructor and Technical
Adviser throughout the duration of the Capstone Project.
6. Must meet the Class Instructor for consultation before the Capstone Project
Defense.The meetings serve as a venue for the proponent to report the
progress of their work, as well as raise any issues or concerns.
7. Must comply with the requirements of the beneficiary provided that it
harmonizes with the panelist suggestions and recommendations during the
defense. In case conflict arises the Proponents must consult the Technical
Adviser.
Guidelines on Regrouping
1. Regrouping will be allowed only during ITRP1 with valid reason (i.e.
irreconcilable differences)
2. Regrouping will be allowed if less than 3 of the group members remain.
Should this happen, the group may be disbanded and members of the
affected group may join other groups provided they donot exceed 4 members.
a. Regrouping with Passing Grade

The remaining members must continue with their proposal. In case of


topic ownership conflict and/or change of scope, the members must seek
consent from the Class Instructor for approval.
b. Regrouping with Failing Grade
The members may be allowed to regroup but cannot use the existing
proposal.
VI.

GRADING SYSTEM
The Proponents grade will be computed using the following breakdown:
BS Information Technology
IT Capstone Project 1
Class Adviser 10%
Technical Adviser 15%
Pre-Defense 30%
Final Defense 40%

XIV.

IT Capstone Project 2
Class Adviser 10%
Technical Adviser 10%
Pre-Defense 20%
Final Defense 60%
