Capstone project courses give students experience solving a substantial problem using
concepts that span several topic areas in the program of study. Having 280 students graduate
every year, requires a substantial effort towards sourcing appropriate projects from the
industry and academia that provide hands-on opportunity to apply IT solutions to problems.
This paper presents two sourcing models for supporting the sourcing of capstone projects. For
each model, the various project origination sources, the distinct attributes, the challenges and
lessons learnt are discussed.
