Industry Research Project (INFS8202)

This course is suitable for information systems masters’ level students wishing to gain industry experience and carry out applied research on an information systems topic. Candidates will be required to analyse a broad range of published sources on the topic issue, apply tools and techniques from master’s level courses in information systems and related disciplines, gather original input through discussion or interviews with practitioners in the field (where feasible), and analyse data to derive conclusions and implications for practitioners. Where feasible a “host” organization will be identified that will assist with data collection and advice on the project direction.
The final report should be in a form close to publication standard, whether as a management report or as a practitioner-oriented research article.
The current course offering is for individuals or teams of candidates working together on projects.
