About Capstone Projects
Students enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Applied Business Management (GDABM) and the Bachelor of Applied Business Management (BABM) must undertake a 45 credit research project as part of their study. These industry projects are generally contemporary business problems and issues faced by businesses and organisations in New Zealand. Students, using the knowledge they have gained from the programme, and with the help and guidance of their supervisors, will study the problem, conduct the required research, and recommend a workable solution for their business partners.
Students enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Information Technology and final-year Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) must undertake a compulsory 45-credit capstone project. This is nominally 450 learning hours per student. Students usually work in groups, bid for available projects, and complete the project within an academic trimester (around 15 weeks).
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 Bachelor of Information Technology and Graduate Diploma in IT students at WelTec and Whitireia.
Partner with WelTec or Whitireia on capstone projects and you will have access to fresh ideas and additional resources in the field of computing and information technology, as well as business.
Booklets are published annually containing a summary of that year's projects.
