Capstone Projects

Business and IT students enrolled in certain programmes are given the opportunity to get real work experience with our capstone projects. The project experience provides industry, non-profit organisations and businesses the opportunity to support the development of a tertiary student by utilising skills students gained during their study in a project while meeting their own needs. This is also a great opportunity to develop valuable networks and future opportunities for final-year Business and IT students.
