Abstract

The employability of Computer Science graduates has received considerable recent attention by the Shadbolt review and following initiatives. Graduate employability normally requires highly developed interpersonal and team skills. These skills are best developed by experience. A common mechanism for this development is a capstone team project. This presentation will explore the challenges of running one such level 6 team software development project to a cohort of 200 students. In our version of the team project each group of students complete a different project agreed in consultation with the teaching team.
