  • The Computer Science department at Okanagan College is looking for project proposals for its capstone CIS and BCIS project courses

    In the capstone courses, fourth-year students (COSC 470/471) in teams of 5 to 7 work on projects proposed by industry or other organizations. Each team is supervised by a faculty member acting as the technical director and assisting or pointing the students to appropriate technical expertise; you’ll act as the client. The projects can be general projects in software development or more specialized projects in software engineering.

    To better prepare our students for industry, the Computer Science department invites you to submit a project for our students.

    There are numerous benefits to your organization:

    • Exploration of research/development opportunities utilizing the expertise of OC faculty, staff and students.
    • Access to world-class research facilities and expert technical personnel at OC.
    • Engagement with the next class of new graduates to facilitate recruitment and networking.
    • Exploration of products or services that are outside of your organization’s current business plan.
    • Introduction of your organization to the OC academic community.

    Participation: How would you participate? You would submit your own project requirements to ykhmelevsky [dot] okanagan [dot] bc [dot] ca, and our students and faculty would work towards developing potential solutions with you. You will have ample opportunity to be actively engaged in the development of solutions.

    The following outlines the curricular parameters of this final-year project courses (second and fourth years of study), what we have committed to the course, possibilities of participation with you, and suggestions for development going forward. Instructions (please see the next section below) and a CapstonePartnerProposalForm.docx form (please save it to your computer before filling the form out) are available to help you submit your project.

    Curricular Parameters: These courses will form a significant portion of the final-year diploma and degree requirements, representing six credits of course work spread over two academic terms (normally September to April) in courses COSC 470/471. Working in teams of 7 to 15 in COSC 470/471, students will be expected to commit around 10 hours per week to successfully complete this component, resulting in a total of approximately 260 hours per student. For more information on the curriculum visit the COSC programs detailed descriptions page.

    Our Commitment to Resources: The Computer Science department will commit instructional resources to support these students as they become highly competent and enthusiastic professionals. Our duty will be to provide each student with support and instruction in design, project management, communication, solution quality assessment, life cycle analysis, and more.

    Suggestions for Further Development: We believe that offering our students a strong and progressive integrative design experience in their final year of study can best be met in partnership with the community, whether for profit or not. The strength of this program will come from community involvement inside and outside Okanagan College, in which we hope to include you and your organization.

    We understand that a number of issues still need to be addressed. One is that of Intellectual Property, and we are working to introduce easy-to-use templates for all parties to use.

    Another is that of resources. The Computer Science department already committed and will commit a significant amount of financial resources to the project courses infrastructure. To make this a successful partnership and a sustainable model, it is our hope that you and your organization will commit in a similar fashion, if feasible. How this might take shape is currently open for discussion, and we welcome your thoughts.

    We are very excited about offering this learning opportunity for our students to work in partnership with individuals and organizations having a large stake in the current and future successes of software development and engineering. With your support and active contribution, we strongly believe this will be a successful undertaking, bringing benefits to all parties involved.

    We are very interested in hearing from you in regards to this proposal and invitation. We hope that you will be interested in receiving further information about our initiative, and that you will consider becoming an active participant in the program. We welcome any suggestions or input you might have, which can all be submitted to ykhmelevsky [dot] okanagan [dot] bc [dot] ca. We look forward to hearing from you.

    See more information on the “How to submit a Proposal for a Computer Science capstone project“ section below and please use the CapstonePartnerProposalForm.docx form for the project application.

    How to submit a Proposal for a Computer Science capstone project

    In the second- and fourth- year capstone project courses, students work in teams of 3 to 5 (second-year) and of 5 to 7 (fourth-year) on projects proposed by industry or other organizations over a period of eight months. Each team is supervised by a faculty member acting as the technical director and assisting or directing students to appropriate technical expertise. You will act as the client.

    The projects may be general projects in software development, or more specialized projects in software engineering.

    A good capstone project has the following attributes:

    • It is open-ended: students must be able to exercise a fair amount of choice in the design and implementation strategies. This is not a case in which students simply execute a given design, though you may impose reasonable constraints on the design and implementation, such as conformance to the tools and strategies you are already using.
    • It is feasible within the timing and effort allocated to the project course: 3 or 5 students working part-time for 26 weeks represents about 700 to 1000 hours or even much more in the case of 5 to 7 students. At the same time, there is enough work to be done to engage the team until April.
    • Most of the work can be done at OC and does not require students to be present at your location.
    • No critical business outcome on your side relies on this being successful; this is a backburner project, something that you thought “if some day we have some spare time, wouldn’t it be nice to try to … [fill in the blank]”
    • The topic falls within the boundaries of software development and software engineering.
    • You must dedicate some time to explain the problem to the student team, and to help evaluate progress (1 hour per week at least), and at least once at the end of each term. There may be more opportunity along the way if you wish to mentor the team.
    • The project is not confidential, and open source licenses will be used (MIT, GPL, etc.). Although the resulting Intellectual Property can be belong to you, the students need to be able to write reports and to make presentations to instructors and peers at OC for grading (an IP agreement can be developed additionally).
    • Submit a project proposal by filling in the forms linked above (in either Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat) and email to ykhmelevsky [dot] okanagan [dot] bc [dot] ca. See below for further instructions. You may find some inspiration in the accompanying examples.

    The first page will provide information about your project; the second page provides more detail about the people with whom they would be working.

    Background: Briefly explain the domain and the context in which you are trying to solve a software development problem. A few sentences will suffice.

    Objectives: Briefly explain what you’d like the students to resolve, the problem, some of the constraints (e.g., financial), or quality attributes (response time, interoperability, etc.), possible leads on ideas...

    Major Deliverables: Explain what you would need to see to declare success in April: a prototype, a model, a computer simulation, validated design solution, a set of blueprints, etc…

    Special Considerations: You may want to include the following:

    • any special equipment and tools needed
    • required interfaces to already existing elements you have
    • the need for a formal Intellectual Property agreement with OC and the students (our generic agreement can be developed later)

    The second page contains information about the contact person(s) for this project.

    Submit your proposal by sending the completed form CapstonePartnerProposalForm.docx to capstones [dot] okanagan [dot] bc [dot] ca.  Please use the subject line: “Capstone Proposal…”.  We will be happy to review your submission and contact you for further discussion. Feedback will typically be given within a week or two in September, and no later than October 1st.

    Please note that this is very different from hiring a co-op student; this is a course situated within an authentic context with realistic problems, but the students are not employees.  Also, this offer does not constitute a subcontract for design work with OC; neither students nor the instructors are acting as design consultants. Please be aware that it is possible that some projects may fall short of your and our expectations; it is a learning experience.  Finally, if you wish to engage in a joint research project with OC, please note that such a situation would involve graduate students and researchers, funded by NSERC, IRAD, BCIC or others.

    • 10/08/2013: Supercharge Your Agile Toolbox - http://is.gd/vcN954 Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned veteran, there are multiple benefits to adopting an agile methodology. But the world is bigger than just agile. Important ad hoc work doesn’t live in sprints. Critical work can fall through the cracks as teams try to handle multiple streams of work requests. Collaboration can get broken on the work across teams. You need something more.
      • Select the best methodology for the job—no more square pegs and round holes
      • Optimize for DevOps—deploy software using Continuous Delivery principles with one end-to-end tool
      • Prioritize work across multiple projects—make sure the right work gets done at the right time
      • Collaborate in the context of work—stop losing work in email and chat, and eliminate expensive and frequent status meetings
      • Do it all in one tool—request management, work prioritization, Agile, ad hoc work, traditional projects, and collaboration. Don’t bolt on a disconnected tool

    • Wednesday, July 17, 2013: Changing How Programmers Think about Parallel Programming (http://is.gd/RcitCk) at PT/6 pm GMT This webinar will provide an introduction to parallel execution models, focusing on how programmers think about writing programs. Does the way that programmers or algorithm developers think about the way a parallel computer works influence the approaches that they take? Can the choice of programming approach lead to inefficient solutions? Do we need new ways to program parallel systems? This session will explore common approaches for developing parallel programs and how they can limit scalability and reliability–whether the programs are for single chip parallelism or the world’s largest parallel computers. The importance of an execution model and its relationship to programming models and programming systems will be covered, and why we need to consider new execution models for the parallel systems of the future.
    • May 8, 2013: Engineering SaaS: An Agile Software Approach Q&A http://learning.acm.org/webinar/patterson_qa.cfm at 2 pm ET/1 pm CT/12 noon MT/11 am PT/6 pm GMT Software as a Service (SaaS) and Agile software development started simultaneously but independently. SaaS deploys software at one site made available over the Internet. Agile relies on incrementally developed prototypes and continuous customer feedback. Since Agile embraces change, it is an excellent match to SaaS’s rapid evolution. Thus, Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Google...rely on Agile.
