FINAL YEAR PROJECT (FYP) The Final Year Project (FYP) offers student an opportunity to undertake an individual or a group work which student would find both challenging and interesting. The project is to be completed within the span of two (2) consecutive regular semesters, coded as INFO 4998 and INFO 4999. Each course carries 3 credit hours and graded separately. FYP registration is restricted to 3rd and 4th year students only. Students must complete the following departmental courses: 1) INFO 3501 Project Management in IT 2) INFO 3401 Human Computer Interaction 3) INFO 2201 Multimedia Technology 4) INFO 2101 Database Programming 5) CSC 2201 Computer Networking Each student would be allocated with a supervisor who will offer guidance and whom student will meet on a weekly or biweekly basis. Students are advised to discuss their proposed topics with their potential supervisors as soon as they approach the end of Level 3. They should decide the project area (currently Multimedia, Network or System Development) and plan to take not more than 15 credit hours in the semesters that they are taking FYP. Students would initially be required to submit a project proposal, an interim report after one semester, then, on completion of the project, to produce a Final Report of approximately 10,000 words in length. In addition, students are required to present their software products to a panel of FYP assessors. Assessment is based on the management of the project, the methodology, the intellectual quality and originality of the work, the structure and coherence of the report. For the past two semesters, the Kulliyyah has awarded Best Final Year Projects for outstanding projects, judged by an independent Panel of Assessors. The Awards were presented at the Grand KICT Graduation Dinner. A copy of past FYP report is available at the KICT Resource Centre, next to DLIS Office. For the details, please refer to the Final Year Project Guide or the respective Final Year Project Coordinator. PRACTICAL TRAINING Practical Training is a pre-condition for graduation of BIT programme, with 0 credit hours. The purpose of this training is to provide students with an exposure to real work environment and how projects are implemented in organizations. The duration of the practical training is about 3 months, and usually conducted during Semester 3 during the final year. Only 3rd and 4th year students are allowed to undergo the Practical Training. Prior to getting approval, students must pass all four courses:INFO 2201 (Multimedia Technology)

INFO2101 (Database Programming) INFO 3501 (IT Project Management ) CSC 2201 (Computer Networking)

Generally, students are encouraged to find their own placements; in case of difficulty, the Department will assist them in getting the place. Either case, students must make sure that they are assigned to IT projects, or at least attached to an IT department or unit. During the training, each student will be assigned a supervisor i.e. a DIS lecturer as a liaison person between the department and the organization. The Supervisor will visit the student, and at the end of the period, he/she will assess the student. In addition, assessment will also incorporate the company’s feedback and the student’s report. For the details, please refer to the Practical Training Booklet or the Practical training Coordinator.
