Students enrolled in INFO I494 (Fall, 3cr.) and INFO I495 (Spring, 3cr.) create self-selected teams to envision, design, and build an information system to solve a unique problem.
During the fall semester (INFO I494), students spend time learning about the business environment and learning how to work successfully with their peers. They also train on a new software/hardware platform while designing and iterating over their problem space. By the end of the semester, students should have a clear understanding of a workable, practical solution to the problem.
The spring semester (INFO I495) does not include official classroom time, but it allows students to work with their teams to build the solution. Teams have one-on-one meetings with an assigned associate instructor and faculty instructors to discuss roadblocks, revise the design, and shape the development to eventually create a functional, usable information system.
