Review the Course Project content item under Course Home this week to familiarize yourself with expectations over the coming weeks. Note that this week, you will select your project topic. You must have your project topic approved by your professor. Please create a one-page document outlining your project and place it in the Dropbox.
For this project, you may choose one that is of interest to you, or you may choose to begin planning for your senior project. When selecting a project, avoid picking one that is either too big or too small. For example, do not decide to build a new stadium for your local sports team (too big) or to plant your summer garden (too small). Here are some successful past project ideas.
- The opening of a coffee shop (i need on this )
- A charity event for a local social service agency
- A meditation pool and platform in the center of town
- A redevelopment of a local playground
- Design and installation of a computer network for a small business
- Software development project
A project to build a house or create a website is NOT acceptable.
You are not limited to the list of projects above. Please refer all questions concerning what is acceptable as a class project to your instructor.
Due Week 1: Project Proposal/Approval
Each professor will decide if the course will have project teams or be assigned to each individual student to complete the course project. Your professor will notify you of the decision and if the course is going to have project teams, you will be notified of your team assignment.
